A Blended School House

August 8, my 4 yer old began half day preschool.  August 15, my two foster boys began 3rd grade and K at our local public school.  I also enrolled my K girl so I wasn’t repeating K here and one at school.  I started homeschooling my 4th grader and 11th grader last week.  So yes, we are a blended house, in more ways than one.  And with a blended house, comes many challenges.  Like keeping my kids in school organized.   There is so much paper work coming home and I keep watching to make sure I am not missing anything.  I am in the process of creating a schooling center, to keep all these papers together, especially for my foster boys cause I want to be able to send papers home. 
An other challenge was schedule. With homeschooling we are typically done with school work in the day time.  This makes it challenging with afternoon homework.  So I had to create a afternoon schedule so the kids knew what to do.  I also have my 4th grader sitting down with my 3rd grader to do work while he is.  I also use him to quiz him with his times tables.
So next week I hope to have all things in place to continue our Blended School House!
