You Can't Put the Kids in the Fridge- because the shelves are too close together

  Today we put the Christmas break behind us and started back to school.  One of us was in a great mood - ready to actually learn/teach stuff.  
  The kids....not so.
  I understand.  Math is just dumb.  Taking a two week break does not make the 7 times table any more appealing.  And nobody loves underlining all the adjectives in the great, big, lovely, zippity dippity sentence.  
But come on.  Did they have to be so rotten and grumpy?
  Homeschooling could be so much more enjoyable if it weren't for the kids.

I wish someone could homeschool me toward a Masters Degree. I would have a good attitude.

as a mum who is 14 or so years into homeschooling i would have to raise my arms and say..."Oh Kate, you have spoken great wisdom..." laughing out loud and rolling on the floor to think if I only could have gotten rid of the kids this homeschooling journey could have been so much fun.

HAHAHAAA! It always makes me regret a break, but this teacher/mama needed it. I hope it got better ;) The mountain and valleys of the Homeschool life :>
