Repercussions

Today I am feeling very flat. Try as we might, navigating 2020 is a challenge. Parents world wide are struggling with the fall out of Covid 19. Whether you are still in lockdown, home schooling or to trying to adjust to the new rules ‘post virus’, things are different. There are new and unique hurdles.Continue reading “Repercussions”

Day 11 School at home

There was an apprehensive feeling as we opened the blinds this morning. Overnight we had a huge storm and we were all a bit nervous about the damage we might see out the window. At first, all looked to be ok. Everyone breathed a sigh of relief and got on getting ready for school. AsContinue reading “Day 11 School at home”

Day 9 & 10 School at home

As winter sets in in Western Australia, the kids are pretty glad not to be riding their bikes to school in the rain. Instead, they are enjoying rather lazy starts to the day, falling out of bed, getting trackies and Ugg boots on just in time to start their school day online. Meanwhile, I haveContinue reading “Day 9 & 10 School at home”

Day 8 School at home

Today we called in a relief teacher. Both Mum and Dad had to work and our faithful babysitter up the street happened to be looking for a bit of income after loosing her regular work due to the Covid crisis. It worked well for everyone, but especially for Miss 10. Miss 10 secretly hoped sheContinue reading “Day 8 School at home”

Day 7 School at home

14 minutes……….. that was the longest period today without one of the kids saying Mum or Mumma. It was 2:06pm until 2:20pm. ‘Mumma, I don’t understand.’ ‘Mum, I am hungry.’ ‘Mum, I don’t know what I am supposed to do.’ ‘Mumma, I am hungry.’ ‘Mumma, can you help me?’ ‘Mum, I’m hungry.’ ‘Mum, you haveContinue reading “Day 7 School at home”

Day 6 School at home

Here we go again. The start of term 2! Today began with an announcement from Mr 13……. ‘I think I have a science assignment due today and I haven’t done it.’ (insert Mum’s swear words). Great start. How many weeks has he known about that and chosen to ignore it?! After dropping that bombshell, heContinue reading “Day 6 School at home”

Covid school holidays

After we had survived week one of home learning, the school holidays were brought forward. This was a good thing. In all honesty, both the kids and parents (not to mention the teachers) needed a few weeks off to process the huge changes and turmoil into which we had been thrown. In a matter ofContinue reading “Covid school holidays”

Day 1 Home schooling

I started journaling two weeks ago. I love to write, it helps me process. I realised today there are likely a lot of parents out there needing to process and also to know they are not alone in their struggles, so I decided to turn the journal into a blog. 30th March 2020 If IContinue reading “Day 1 Home schooling”
