I wish I could say that homeschooling is always sunshine and daisies, but that's not how it really goes. Some days they don't want to work, or I am dragging and don't want to work, and sometimes things just don't go as planned.

    Quick questions: How old is he? Does he ever mix-up 6 & 9? Is he "strong" in adding? Which curriculum are you using?

    Trying to think of some solutions for both of you so you don't get frustrated!

    He is six. We are using right start math and some math mammoth. He doesn't confuse numbers, he just doesn't always want to take the time to think things through.

    This is us, every day - except the ending! Good job coming back and working through it.
