I'm a sahm to 3 little boys. My oldest son is now 9 and my twins are now 7. This is an online journal to help me keep track of things we do.

Its been three weeks now and I think Nathan has finally gotten into the habit of having school work to do on a consistent basis. As for me I still haven't figured out how to organize so it seems like I don't know what I'm doing. There is alot of materials supplied through the k12 program that I haven't found a way to organize yet plus all the extras stuff they I have to keep the twins busy and don't get me started on school supplies. Nathan struggles some with school but I think having two brothers running around distracting me and him doesn't help. I've ditched the k12 phonics program for now. The stress on Nathan and me has diminished and he's actually learning the sounds and not getting frustrated so I think it was for the best. We are using the Get Ready for the Code program right now and when he completes the 3 books we will see if the k12 program works for him then or if we need to continue with the Code series. Instead of dreading the lessons he now asks for phonics near the beginning which he has been reserving for his favorites.
