School Daze Won't Make Me Eat Cookies!
Saturday, August 08, 2020
It is truly amazing I haven't run off into the sunset with a plate of warm chocolate chips cookies and some brookies. Somehow I chose to walk and do exercise videos and eat healthy food instead instead!
The virtual conferences continue with school board, superintendent and school administrators to talk about their plans. I wish we could stick to core classes online and allow kids options to do offline for specials and electives. While the leaders claim to want to limit screentime, they aren't open to ideas for how to do so.
So right now it looks like there will lots of screentime learning and assignments online, few breaks and no exercise. Just what kids need. What could go wrong?
Basically we may have to play hookie or fake temporary illness so I can bust them out of an online PE class where apparently exercise is not allowed, and get them some actual exercise outside.
Oh well, at least I know my kids will be safe and we will find our way once again. I should be a pro by now at troubleshooting online issues. Plus, I can continue to tutor them and supplement as needed all while working part time right?
I can do this. It won't last forever. What do we have exactly...another 6 months, year or 2 years of this?
Meanwhile, if you see me at the grocery store with a crazy full cart, don't worry. I am not hoarding food. My kids are both growing and have tripled what they eat while still being skinny as can be.
My kids eat 5x what I eat and yet they look like I never feed them. Oh how I miss the days of having a fast metabolism!
