First week back to school

It is tough getting back into the swing of things. Jay spent a few days last week visiting his grandma & Dea won't be back from her grandma's until this weekend. So, we didn't really do any school last week. This means that today is Jay's first full week of school in about a month. It is a little difficult to get back in the swing of a regular week. I slept like crap last night, which doesn't help. He had a To Do List on the table this morning, but blew off most of what was on it until I forced him to start working on it. He spent some time in his room because of attitude today, as well, which just ate up more time he should have been using to do what he needs to do. I'm really hoping that we are back to normal by the end of the week, especially since Dea starts a new term next week.

This is actually a big reason we don't do the big summer breaks many others do. If we take big breaks, it is very difficult to get the kids back to our school schedule. We normally break up the bis stuff, like visits with out of town family, instead of lumping it all together. This year, though, it all just happened that the only times that worked were one right after the other.
