Last year, the 2012-2013 school year, was an awful year for us.
We had a major change mid year (and to allay fears, no it WASN'T a tornado), and I have to admit that our 'strict' homeschooling came to a screeching halt. It was my fault: I wasn't doing very well because of the change, and I had an incredibly hard time devising plans and carrying them out. The little battles with our homeschool- the kid who really doesn't like to apply himself, no matter how bright he is, the child who loves to talk when she should be working- were just too exhausting for me to handle in a manner that my children deserve. By spring, I felt like a complete failure. Less than half of what I wanted to get done actually got there, two-day assignments stretched into a week and, sometimes, two.
