WE DID IT!!
Today, we followed the new full school schedule and it actually worked! I can't believe it. Everyone was done with their school work and chores were done by the time dh got home for the evening.
The house is actually kind of clean. The kitchen is clean, school is put away, the bathrooms are clean, and the main areas of the house have been swept. Plus, we had fun learning.
I am amazed. God is so good. It had to be Him guiding us and His Spirit was evident in manner in which we were able to achieve our goals.
I have pictures of Zoology that I will try to post later. For now, we are going to watch the Olympics.
