    DAY 3

     

    Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Caramels | All Chocolate | Chocolate ...

    Happy National Chocolate Caramel Day! Who can refuse chocolate?  Now put that together with caramel and you now have something irresistible!  Go check out this recipe, if you want to try out an easy way to satisfy this craving!  https://www.lifeloveandsugar.com/homemade-caramel-sauce/

     

    How did yesterday go?  To be honest, the McGough household was feeling the pain.  Oh, it was tough, but we made it. I have a new appreciation for parents that work from home and watch kids.  It’s tough.  What I have learned is BE FLEXIBLE. I put together a beautiful schedule with times and tasks and you know what? I was stressing myself out trying to follow it to a T.  Then came the AHA moment!  Life is forever changing, roll with it. Will something tragic happen if I don’t get XYZ done?  Nope.  It’s a huge life lesson, that we all need to understand. Do what you can; leave the rest for another day.

     

    Here is your assignment for today:  Remember you can do the suggested lesson below or pick an activity from your choice menu.  You decide!  For my math students, please try to work on tasks from the math lesson below. I will also be emailing my math kiddos a math worksheet each night, to correspond to the day's lesson. ENJOY!
