And somehow it is summer.
First things first, remember this lady?
That was twenty years ago. I have been living like a grown up for two decades now.
We wrapped up home schooling. Apparently actual schools are going to open up in September.
Of all the things I thought I would do in my life, home schooling was not on the list. It turned out ok though. There was a lot of yelling, sure, but at the end of the day everyone handed in their assignments. Markus was working with nona which meant on a good day he would finish all work before she showed up so he could get out of doing the lesson. On a bad day they would argue for two hours about having to do twenty minutes of work. Ultimately, his reading improved so I guess it was all worth it.
Owen somehow managed to get behind and had two months of assignments to catch up on. I worked with him a lot on this and I am glad I did. It helped me understand what kind of things he finds hard to do and where he gets frustrated. I kept an eye on Trev as well, but once he got used to doing work from home, he was quite independent.
I also instituted physical ed class and got the boys to bike or take a long walk every day.
They got really good at it to the point they can go get ice-cream at Britannia beach by themselves.
We were not able to have friends over to the house, but some ducks came by for a few weeks.
Since then we have been busy with home renos. The boys are somewhere between fighting and having the best time with each other. Trev made a list of things he wants to accomplish this summer and one of them is to get Markus to like him.
Trevor has been busy creating new things like train layouts and aquarium stands.
I was able to get back into randonneuring after a short break last year.
