August 3 in 30 Challenge - Week 3

Week 3 of August was very good. I worked on August goals and even had progress on my past goals.

1. Get our daily schedule/routine in place - We are still doing well but next week it is going to get very messed up since I have to work from 9 am - 2 pm every day. I promised my boss I would work for them while they were away on their cruise.
2. Start homschooling - Homeschooling is going great and the kids are enjoying themselves very much. I am also having a blast and so happy I get to witness them learn new things. So far I have been able to hear Gwyn read her first words and see Rowyn write his first letter 'A'.
3. Learn better ways to discipline - We had a better week. I took away privileges and used timeouts for misbehavior. Lately the kids have been bickering a lot and I am still having problems with Gwyns behavior but hopefully over time it will get better. Why can't they come with instruction books at birth?

Any encouraging words are always appreciated!

I'd like to tell you that the bickering gets better, but it doesn't! As you know I am working on "tone" in our home and your better ways to discipline falls into that category as well.

I think you will find that the calmer and more matter of fact you can be about discipline, the better it will be received.
