On a Serious Note...

School started a month ago and it has been a real struggle. My kids are big on sleep and them waking up early every day is taking a toll. I was hoping by now they'd be used to it, but they never get it used to it. They love their sleep.
I know I've stated before that my oldest, Gavin, is Autistic. He started Middle School this year and so far, it has been hard. He has a very hard time focusing and he see's things very black and white. So if a kid butts in front in the lunch line, he really struggles with it being okay. 
He really doesn't have any friends and has been coming home very sad. He gets a print out of his grades every day and he stresses if he doesn't have an A in all classes. Most kids, even if they DID want an A, would be able to turn it around and work at it. Gavin can't stop focusing enough on it to actually do the work that needs to be done. Can we also state that he's a boy and even with the binder and folders to help him keep track of homework, he's totally disorganized? What 11 year old boy is organized though?

Anyways, my point on this is that my life is absolute chaos at the moment. I am at a constant go and I'm really considering homeschooling. I wont be posting much for a while, but know that I am still working behind the scenes on my patterns. The Anise Blazer being the one I'm currently working on.

  6. Sorry you are going through this! I vote for homeschooling. There is so much out there for good information. And he best part is the kids can sleep! We have a kid who has some special learning needs and what is better than some one on one teaching from someone who knows him better than any teacher.
