My children fought like cats and dogs yesterday. Oy.
However, when it came to their schoolwork I was very proud of them. This year I am trying out clipboards with a weekly schedule on them. Yesterday we did our schoolwork, then had lunch and the babies went down for nap. Claire and Chandler went in their rooms for some quiet, independent reading time and when they came out they decided to go ahead and do Tuesday's schoolwork so they could have today off! I was very pleased with their initiative.
