At the risk of sounding like a bad Mom, I'm going to keep it real with you guys.  I'm seriously starting to dislike the fact that 1/2 of my kids schooling is being done at home.  I totally understand the safety issues and this is not a knock on the school system, but my two kids are 6 and 8 and on the days that they're at home with me it's a zoo.  My husband is essential and works long hours and on days the kids are home w me, I get nothing done.  I realize we're all burnt out here, but I really can't take it.  If this is going to last another year or two, I'm considering putting them in a different school that does not force at-home learning.
Please tell me I'm not alone in this?
