I have to say today was unbelievably peaceful from 8 - 1pm. I think it's the longest span I've been alone since they were sent home mid-March!

Revised back to school plan
The first day went well enough, I kept Violette home and she did two hours of work where I would initiate a subject and then give her a page to work on while I worked my job. Then I had an unexpected conference call in the morning and had to send her off to play her phone for an hour and a half. Later that day when I picked up the others, I talked to the principal and learned she was less concerned about student spacing than I originally assumed. Later in the afternoon my cousin came over to finish the lessons and we both realized if she could be squeezed into the classroom it would be better. So today all four kids went to school! The only problems we are having is school runs from 8:30 - 1pm and the kids are starving when I pick them up. I've sent snacks but it's not enough so I might just prepare lunch right before I pick them up so they can eat when they get home. It's either that or I pack lunches and let them stay with their dad until he's ready to leave at 3pm.
