Keeping Up?

How do you keep up? This is a question I get asked and I ask myself often.  Really how do you keep up with the the husband, the kids, the mil (Nana), church, house, schooling, bills, meals, your health any of it and all of it.  How do you keep up?  There are days that I just don't.  There are days that I just want to climb under the covers and NOT do anything.  There are days that I am not able to do much other then sit in my recliner and watch my kids keep from hurting each other.  Those are the days that I have a headache that is about to explode my head and I am not proud of.

 Then there are the days that there are a million things going on, but some how I hold it together, the only way I can say that happens is with GOD's help!  Some people pray daily.  I am more the constant conversation with my father kind of gal.  We talk all day long.  If you come into a room and hear me talking.  I am not talking to myself I am usually talking to God.  I know that sounds crazy to some of you but that is what works for me. And some days in my world it is the only way to keep ME from going crazy.

On a side note: I had someone ask me about reading.... 

Do you recommend any help for a child that might need extra help w/ their reading?

I would recommend some remedial reading programs.  You want to pick materials where the child is able to comprehend what he reads without to much difficulty and where he understand the vocabulary.  Which leads me to another idea to help the Dolch words list are also good to work from to help with reading.

  1. If you pick comfortable reading level books with lots of practice, that will provide awesome progress. Practice makes progress!

  2. I loved your comment about not talking to yourself but talking to God. I'll admit I'm guilty of often actually talking to MYSELF. But as a homeschooler, I'm really just having a parent-teacher conference, right? ;)
