There are two main things I struggle with during the school year. The first is packing lunches. I hate packing lunches because Audrey won’t eat sandwiches. Her other problem is that she gets tired of things after eating them just a couple of times. Fortunately, Georgia loves sandwiches and is very easy to pack for, so this year definitely could’ve been worse in the lunch category.
My other problem during the school year is the whole homework thing. My girls are, in my opinion, lucky in that they get very little homework. Georgia comes home each Monday afternoon with a packet of four quick worksheets that she can do any time and turn in on Friday. She usually finishes them on Monday afternoons in about ten minutes.
Audrey has a math sheet and a spelling activity each night, Monday-Thursday. If she got right down to it, her homework would take no more than 15 minutes. But frequently, completing the homework becomes a fight.
