It came and went....

Summer that is. So that's it!? In and out like a flash. I can't say we didn't enjoy our time. We took part in Awana camp, VBS, made trips to the beach and pool, lazed around, got some projects done, rearranged, reorganized and re-alized....summer is just about over! Dave is back in school and I am preparing for the start of our year! As always I have lofty goals, "School Year Resolutions" I are a few

  • To enjoy this year more than any other year.
  • I want to have 4 days of school planned.
  • I don't want to over do it!!!!!
  • Do more Science Experiments, Art projects and Field trips! (wait didn't i say I didn't want to "over do it"?
  • I want to focus on what God has for us this year, not on what I want to accomplish!
  • I want to take each day as God gives to us.
  • I would love the kids to be involved in either music lessons, Gymnastics, Boy Scouts/Girl Scouts.....
  • I should probably state again I don't want to over do it!
  • I do want to stick to a schedule or routine....
  • I want to live life, not from emergency to is not an emergency!
  • I want to finish this year's curriculum (I've come closer each year!)
  • I would love to be a part of a Homeschool group or co-op.....
As each year goes by and we gain more experience as a homeschooling family, I feel more and more comfortable in my skin as a parent and teacher. But each year I look forward to tweaking things just a little to get them running more smoothly. This year, there are no huge changes taking place, no babies being added to the family or moving. In a few weeks it will just be us again, and finally I'll be able to get into my own groove.

I've been getting lots of things crossed off my list like making my own planner and putting together Gracia's curriculum (Preschool!!) Planning review weeks and the first term, reorganizing the school room and making the kids portfolios from last year. Little by little we are headed into a new and exciting year!

But before we do.....maybe we'll take one more trip to the beach......
