The hectic haywire life of homeschooling 3 boys, and working two jobs.

Well much to the dismay of my 14y/o son we have had a death in the household. I just want to say RIP Shredder the dwarf hamster. His younger brothers feel so bad for him that they have decided to pool their money and get him a gerbil. So off we go on a "field trip" to the pet store to see if we can get another pet.

Ok I'm just trying to figure this thing out. I homeschool 3 boys ages 12, 14 and 15 so we are in grades 7, 8 and 9. This is our first year to homeschool and in addition to it I also drive school bus for a local school and sell Pampered Chef. Right now we're kind of flying by the seat of our pants when it comes to curriculum. I got aggravated with the "boxed" curriculum we bought at the beginning of the year and basically tossed most of it in about November. But we're learning and having fun and doing ALOT of reading. As soon as it gets here we're going to start on the US Constitution and for fun I bought the Thomas Kinkade art which my 12y/o has been begging for. Wish us luck!!!
