I haven't been posting lately simply because my youngest and oldest children have decided they are going to be difficult. My youngest has had her 8th bday that she has been excited about since she turned 7. In our faith that means she gets to be baptized AND her first friend bday party. It has been chaos for over 8 days. This also includes a family field trip to a museum an hr away on dh bday 5 days after dd. So we've been doing lots of celebrating.
Then we had a field trip with our homeschool group and that was fun. The next day we dd's bday party with 18/ 5-10 yr kids(mostly girls) at our local gymnastics place.
So now that things are over with, I was hoping for a bit of calmness. Unfortunately, dd has decided she still doesn't want to settle. Not surprising, it just means that I'm going to have to relax and be patient with her.
And ds has been doing some "projects" in the month of Sept and Oct. Now that he's done I want some serious school work out of him. He's resisting which is driving me nuts. All I ask is for 4 to 5 subjects a day. He is graduated from hs, but he still has some studies to finish. So basically I'm stressed out because those two just have been resistant to me. ARGH!!
