There was also plenty of time reviewing last year's math with Sedona, working on multiplying and adding numbers with exponents for Sierra, brushing up on identifying subject nouns, verbs, adverbs and adjectives and working on spelling. I didn't quite realize how unstructured we'd gotten over the summer, it's back to the daily grind for now. Each of the big girls only does about 3-4 hours of school work each day, but since I'm going back and forth teaching each of them, I'm teaching pretty much non-stop from 9a-4p and answering work emails "in the background" (while they work a practice problem or write a spelling sentence). This is about the same routine we had last year and I suspect as Secora's ready to do more, Sierra will continue to get more independent, so this will probably be our school norm for several years.
Overall, looks like it's gonna be a great year and I think we're all ready to be in some semblance of a regular routine again!
