As is tradition, I started Elijah’s school year today, the day after Labor Day.  That’s one great thing about homeschooling.  As long as I do the hours he has to have from July 1 through June 30, I can hold school whenever I want.  Or is it August 1 through July 31 in Missouri?  Doesn’t matter, we start right after Labor Day!

It went well.  Trying a few new strategies this year, so we’ll see about all that, but so far so good.  There was a bit of a meltdown when he had to re-do some math problems.  He hates getting them wrong more than he hates doing them in the first place.  Probably because he has to do them again.  But other than that he did everything well, and he’s got several new things to do this year.

Kayleigh had to stay home from her school, though, she had a fever.  A cold, I guess. She’s coughing a little bit, she’s sneezy, has some watery eyes.  The good news about that is that we don’t have to jump up and go get her a urine test.  Just ride this out.  She’ll probably be staying home tomorrow, too, since even if she wakes up without a fever, she won’t have been fever-free for 24 hours.

I forgot what else I was going to talk about. kthxbai.
