Monday, May 2: Woke to a beautiful morning, the garden is planted, children are asleep. So much is on my mind to pray and think about. How can I muster for school when there is so much planning and thinking to do? Here's the list:
In-laws arrive, Molly's birthday, homeschool day at the amusement park, beach vacation, homeschool convention, next year's planning retreat...wow! Meanwhile I cannot even find the sheets and textbooks that I am looking for to keep ourselves up to speed on the basics. Today I gave myself permission to stop lessons for a bit and regroup, then gear up for a six-week summer term of math and language arts. Meanwhile my basement / school room is a disaster--not the nice pretty pictures from the start of the year that I have posted here. Of course I will need to tweak a couple of things down there, too...I think a trip to Ikea may be in order. (mwahahaha!)
So...The next weekly update I write will be Fall term, week 1, for school year 2011-2012. In the meantime, I will be blogging about some exciting new developments in our homeschool goals and plans.
Happy summer from the Accidental Homeschooler!
