I have a wonderful schedule created on home school tracker. It fits perfectly with holidays and birthdays and our evenly spaced breaks.
Then everyone gets sick. Not just sniffling but with a stomach virus. For the last week and a half, I have had at least own warm damp body sleeping on my sofa during the day. They don't beg for a snack or to go out and play. They don't even argue with one another. They have been sick, really sick.
So much for perfect schedules, I try to remind myself that we are not behind. That my best case scenario schedule wasn’t perfect because I can’t see ahead. I can’t see the next minor emergency but God can. I need to not be so upset that my plan isn’t working and to allow life to happen.
