The first week of homeschooling was actually quite pleasant. E has asthma so we pulled her out of school before the NSW government started encouraging parents to do so.
I look back on that first week as the halcyon days of homeschooling. Back then, there was no one to compare myself to, no parents posting pictures to the Year 3 Whatsapp group of artistic masterpieces (‘Sara made this fairy garden in the park so other kids can enjoy J’), maths geniuses (‘100%! Go girl!’), or science projects (‘Jake made a model photovoltaic system while I was doing the laundry. LOL.’)
