- Do you remember how to log in to that website your son uses for math class?
- What’s the link for that YouTube video about hummingbirds that you were planning to show the kids this morning?
- How far did your husband get in your English curriculum when he worked with the kids yesterday?

- found myself without essential materials when we sat down to do school in the morning.
- bought books twice because I didn’t realize I already owned the ebook version on my Kindle app.
- forgot to log assignments we completed in our Homeschool Log spreadsheet.
- found myself digging through workbooks, booklists, and months worth of digital photos to try to assemble a portfolio.
