Inside: 4 Tips to help you homeschool Multiple ages and grades without losing your sanity.
When I entered the water bumper boats with my boys I had no idea that I had a big target on my back.
My husband decided to sit this ride out and let me take all five of our sons onto those little boats with water guns mounted on the front.
What the heck was I thinking?
Apparently, my fourth youngest son thought the funniest thing in the universe was to spray his sweet defenseless mama.
Not just a little squirt mind you- spray, saturate, soak. I have never been the object of such abuse before.
That this child loses his mind when armed with water of any kind. This was not the first or the last time I have been his helpless victim.
I should have known.
This same son that soaked me at the age of 3.
We were late.
I had a baby on one hip, an umbrella in one hand and “guilty son” held tightly by my other hand.
It was raining like God was playing “Dump the bucket on Bekki”.
Guilty son figured out quickly that if he stomped his foot “just right” that the puddle would hit me like a tsunami.
So there I was- dashing through the rain to pick up another son (Yes, I have a lot of sons…). And I was being drenched by an evil laughing 3-year-old.
The child laughed like that creepy Chucky doll in the horror movies.
(I have never seen it, but that’s what I imagine).
Homeschooling multiple kids and grades simultaneously can be like riding water bumper boats.
