End of Summer
Summer is at a close and I think I am as sad as the children. I never knew mother's enjoyed summer break as much as the children do. Maybe it is because I am a homeschooling parent, but I think it is more just who I am. I loved having lazy days with the girls or days where we chased around taking fun classes. But, today was our farewell to the lazy days of summer.
Tomorrow will be filled with challenges. This year, I am homeschooling both. Even though my youngest did participate in homeschool last year, she was at preschool part of the time, allowing for a lot of one-on-one time with my eldest. Plus, homeschool was optional for her last year. I have pondered a schedule for the past several weeks. I am pretty certain I will have to tweak it, but hopefully, I am off to a good start. Fortunately, we did manage to knock out a couple of weeks or so of school on various days over the summer. This will allow for a few breather days this year.
Wish me luck!
