OK, today went much better than yesterday! :) Austin got a good night's sleep, which is so crucial to his ability to handle things. I think that can be said for all of us!
Today we had math games and reading. It didn't take us nearly as long as it did yesterday, and everyone had a much better attitude, which makes everything more pleasant! Not that yesterday was a disaster, it was just filled with lots of tears and arguing. The girls actually enjoyed putting puzzles together when they finished their work, before we went to see Shrek the Third, which was much better than the 2nd one! Austin struggled with not knowing what to do, but he was willing to help me around the house. I'm not quite ready to tackle games with him quite yet, because he gets so obsessed with winning, and gets quite upset when he loses. We'll have more time to get in the groove of this next week!
Next week we'll add math, writing, history, and science. Or at least math. :)
