Week 8 Reflections

That was a pretty good week. We did manage to do most of what was planned, but that was somewhat miraculous. There were a couple of things that got canceled, and I also spent a couple of days fighting a migraine. Migraines stink and make me rather cranky, but they do make sure that I stay home. As long as we are home, things get done.

One thing that I did differently this week was to help my high school freshman put all of his work into both his planner (creating daily lists of work for each school day) AND onto a schedule for the week, assigning each subject a block of time on each of the four days. I’ve resisted this forever (more on that later), but do you know what?  It worked. He knew both what he needed to do and when he needed to do it, and he didn’t need me to tell him what to do.  That is a fantastic thing because I can only keep so many to-do lists in my head. If his is on paper and assigned to hours, I don’t have to think about it. Decision fatigue avoided again!

Because we all had all of the work due on Monday done and packed on Friday afternoon, we went to Science Museum Oklahoma for the day on Saturday, hence the pictures.
