No School

There wasn't any school today, which is good since my kids wouldn't have gone anyway. I'm feeling mostly better, but pretty weak.

N has had a fantastic day. He made a list of all the things he wanted to do today. He had 3 hours of homework to do (because he didn't do 1/2 of it on Friday). I helped him organize them so that things were in reasonable increments. Then he jumped into his schedule and got everything done. I really think it helped for him to see all the possibilities for his day as well as what he would loose if he just laid around. He also had a prioritized list for his homework (make-up work actually). He burned through that list so fast. We talked about objectives (to complete the assignment quickly) and how trying to do things perfectly might get in the way. We also talked about making best guesses a moving on even if he didn't know the answer. He got a lot done! I made sure to praise him and remind him of all the free time he had because of his hard work.
