So at lunch time today when we were all calm and in good moods, I brought up the fact that they have been bickering quite a bit lately. I asked them if they had any ideas on how to make it stop.
“Well,” said LD, “maybe we should spend more time apart from each other.”
“I know,” said DD, “how about if LD and ED go to public school!!”
“NOOooooo” the others laughed!
So, despite their grumpy moments, they *do* like homeschooling!
Did we find a solution to end all the arguments? Not really, but at least we got it out in the open and talked about it. They’re all laughing and getting along at the moment. Let’s hope that lasts!
