One thing I have figured out about myself this week.
Getting up at 6:45 is just not going to cut it.
I believe I will be setting my alarm for more like 5:00 to be able to accomplish what I need to get done.
I have a 7th grader now.
Long gone are the days when I would feel totally comfortable hiking for the day and calling it science.
Oh wait…I never hiked.
Long gone are the days when I would feel totally comfortable going to the beach for the day and calling it science.
Ya…that is more like it. ha.
Anyways. AJ is kind of like a big boy now, so homeschooling takes on a whole entire new life of its own.
Looks like me being in the school room for hours helping him with his work.
Now…understand a couple things I am NOT complaining about:
1. Being with my kids. I hope that if you know anything about me at this point it is that I would choose being with my kids more than just about anyone else. For real.
2. The fact that I have a school room!!!!! The enormity of that very sentence is not lost on me!
For the last six years, I would dream about the day when I would have a real live room that I could actually call school room! (Well..now, it is kind of also taco’s room. That is except for the times that taco thinks the entire house is her kingdom and every room is hers.)
So. all of that to say.
I am not complaining. It’s just that today was long and while it was very productive on many levels, I felt like I had totally failed.
Just keeping it real.
I had had a great time with my Bible…although now that I am thinking back. I was out of creamer for my coffee!! That must have been where everything started to unravel!
And then…I just started doing a million things and realizing that I would never complete everything I wanted to complete.
AJ was needing help with his math and was getting frustrated.
Sometimes, this causes a chain reaction.
I started getting frustrated that he was frustrated and then you know what happened next.
The chocolate chips from the kitchen started screaming my name.
Dude. No lie. They know how to call me.
Next thing I know, I see AJ going into the sun room.
And I think to myself…What in the world does he think he’s doing?! There is no way he is done with his math yet!
I look in and see this.
That is one smart boy.
He knew where he needed to go when he started feeling frustrated.
After he read his Bible he definitely had a better outlook and things got a bit easier.
And so our new lives are filled to the brim with the likes of this
(Excuse the picture quality. I was in no mood to get my camera out, so I just used my iphone. Good enough to make my point.)
And…for all of you mocking me because of the latin book you see.
I deserve it.
I know what I said about latin in the past. But it is just part of this curriculum so I am going with it.
That’s the end of that.
Hoping to get to bed early tonight, get up early tomorrow and hopefully get everything done that I have planned.
How’s your week looking? I would love to hear all about it.
