What Works For Me 30/365 All Ready For ThemPosted: January 29, 2012
First day in a new workplace for me and first day of homework for the boys. Whew!
I arrived home before the boys and dh was cooking dinner (Hooray!) so I sat out on the deck with a coffee and my phone and my homework caddy. The photo was not taken on the deck because now I’m inside and trying to move off my chair as little as possible for a while. It has been a BIG day.
I’ve tried a number of systems for dealing with homework over the years. I’ve had the homework box with lid which housed the caddy I am now using but it got lost on the floor somewhere. Last year I decided that if they were to focus the boys would need to work at a desk each in my office/bedroom. That one never got off the ground because I never had enough space for them to work in. They ended up doing homework in a number of different locations and homework and materials were spread all over the place.
So now I have the caddy which can go to wherever we are doing homework and they each have a magazine file in my office to store their homework during the week. The magazine files aren’t quite ready yet but we’ll get there.
