The season of strife

Summer is on our heels and there are many things to be grateful for, not the least of these being no more school for several months. The girls will be visiting Nonna & Bop for a couple of weeks. There’s a possible trip to Europe for a couple of weeks. And my girls will be going at each other’s throats all summer long.

One of the benefits about homeschooling is that you and your children are around each other all the time. One of the down sides to homeschooling is that you and your children are around each other all the time. That intense love for each other can easily and turn into intense annoyance. There’s little reprieve when both girls stay home.

This has come to a head in the month of May. If there’s a reason, way, method, or time to bicker my girls will do it. I’m thinking a boarding school would be appropriate at this point. Or an all-summer camp. I need to do some serious brain storming on ways to geographically separate them several times a week for several hours at a time.

My summer sanity is depending on it.
