Summer has this wonderful relaxing feel to it. You don’t really have to worry as much, or feel like you have to work twice as hard, because you know you have plenty of time.
That’s where I’ve been lately. In my home, we have had at least 3 colds this summer. We are now finally recovering from the last one, and I’m going to keep my fingers crossed that it will be the end for our summer colds. Annoying as they were, I guess I can say it was okay.
It gave me time to look into a curriculum for my daughter, and I can happily say that I’ve found one, and we have been using it so far for Pre-K instructions. Which I might add is going okay so far. I am amazed at how much I already taught her throughout her home time with me. It looks like for the most part Pre-K is just a review for her, and I’m sure we’ll head into K soon enough.
Officially we are heading into week 4 of homeschooling, and the fear that I was feeling is just gone. I am elated, happy, and know what I can do, and what I can’t. If I ever felt like I couldn’t do it because I didn’t think I had enough time (with two children) — I was dead wrong. When I questioned that I don’t know if this is good for my family, I was wrong–this is the best thing that I could do for them.
Yes, it does help out when someone can give LittleZ attention while I focus on Zee, but it’s okay, we make it work. Zee gets what she needs of me, and I continue to remind myself that I am only one person. There are days (Lord knows there are days where I wonder what am I doing), but this is just the beginning of this journey.
The downside is that homeschooling takes up my mornings so I can’t blog or read blogs (sucks right?!). Instead I have pushed writing to the evenings or weekends.
So there you have it folks, a perfectly good excuse why I haven’t been online as often, and haven’t been around as much as I love to. When I finally get the hang of this, and we are finally in our groove, I’m sure things will fall back into place.
How long does it take you to get back on your feet after a major change?
