The poor daffodils have taken a bit of a weather pounding over the last few weeks.

It’s official. Two years ago to the day that Hawklad’s SCHOOL AT HOME project started. He hasn’t been in a classroom in all that time. That’s a long time. Is it too long to make a school return realistic, manageable for him. Only time will tell. All I can do is support him. Try to maintain a safe, happy home and keep as much of the pressure off him as I can. Progress has to be at his pace. See how he goes, see what he ultimately can manage and what he wants to do.

Looking back, we both laughed today. We remember the conversations back in March 2020. I think we both remember saying, ‘let’s give it a week’. That should have been ‘give it a week plus an extra 103 weeks….’.

Back in 2020 we had been struggling with school. They had bottom setted him. They had given up on his dyslexia. Yes we had been thinking about homeschooling. Then we crashed unexpectedly into these two years. This odd halfway house. Not true homeschooling, not true classroom schooling. The SCHOOL AT HOME project, happy second birthday.

      1. Oh that’s sad. I love gluten, I use it to make delish vegan BBQ spare fibs. I just make sure I also eat something like beans or have figgy biccies 🍪🍪🍪 with my cuppa, to combat the bind. Still, we all have something we have to look out for, our personal kryptonite. I find eating a whole Frys chocolate cream in one go is mine. 🍫 I go straight to sleep, zonk, gone for a while. Going to end with a Robert Burns:

        “Some hae meat and canna eat,
        And some wad eat that want it,
        But we hae meat and we can eat,
        And sae the Lord be thankit.”

  1. Wow. That long now? Many frustrations, I know. Yet I am sure a bond is being woven over this shared thing and what an opportunity to shape his path in a very important way. God has purpose in all things, even when it’s difficult to see.

  2. You know, my family and I got all Facebook memories yesterday and the day before of when our dog past. She passed away about a week before the Vets shut down to people coming inside. She died just before COVID really hit. I always forget that, lol
