Planning for the Unexpected…

Our homeschool day often starts at 6:30 am.  It never fails that at least once every few weeks I’ll get a call about an urgent issue at work and I need to speed off.  We may be in the middle of a lesson.  What to do?

I’ve found what works best for me in this situation is to either have my husband take over, if he’s home, or to wait until I’m home in the evening to finish it. I try to keep a block of time in my evenings for situations like this…but it’s not always the case.  Then there are the nights that I call in pizza and instead of cooking I teach English or math.

When you are employed and homeschool, it’s likely this situation will come up from time to time.  Try to plan the best you can for those times and offer yourself grace.  Do what works for your family.
