Day 12: School daze

Monday, March 23, 2020

Remote learning started today, which is stressful because we didn’t have the kids’ chromebooks yet. They each have their own that they use at school (thanks to the best school district) and we’re picking them up on Tuesday. All of the kids’ teachers have sent emails detailing how to do their classes and it’s impossible to focus on or comprehend what they’re saying because we don’t have the equipment to follow along. It’s overwhelming.

I can hardly get them out of bed these days and I since I get up at my regular time to work remotely, I can hardly stay up as late as they do. So after I crash at 10p LATEST who knows what the wildlings are up doing or for how long. Now I have to figure out a schedule for them so they can do some sort of learning.

And Julian with his high school honors math? Fahgettaboudit.

I keep seeing things online about how this period of time doesn’t have to be strict or too serious, and that’s how I want it to be. I like the idea that the kids will remember this weird time as mostly fun and a break from school. They’re getting along better than ever and I’ve gotten more steps these days than before now with all the walks we go on. But on the other hand, I don’t want them to fall behind. I don’t know what the goal of this remote-learning is. Is it to keep them from turning into mush? Because I can keep up with that. Is it to move them along to the next grade level? That worries me.
