It all began with a dream...
It’s that time of year again to announce our curriculum choices for the new school year. For those of you who homeschool, you know how much thought and work goes into choosing curriculum. Hopefully there are some homeschool-mom-nerds out there like me who actually LIKE choosing curriculum. I love change and deciding on curriculum is like choosing the next path for our lives. This year my peeps will be in 9th, 8th, 6th, 4th, and 2nd grade. I can hardly believe my baby is in 2nd grade. Where does the time go?!
I am an introvert. I like to be alone. I like quiet. I like not speaking out loud for hours on end. When I have to talk or someone talks to me, my energy tank starts to drain. When I'm in the presence of people, my ability to stay engaged starts waning. I wish, wish, wish I could be energized and empowered when around people. That would be easier. (Extroverts don't know how good they have it!) When I'm already tired around people it drains faster. When I'm hungry, faster. When I'm in pain, faster. When I'm sick, even faster.
Have I mentioned I also homeschool five children?
I’d like to spread some thank yous. As many of you know, the reason why I’ve gone a little silent on my blog lately is because we’ve had a death in the family. Some of you sent donations to help us travel and afford to be away for two weeks. Thank you for your blessings. My heart is full and overflowing with gratitude. The only thing I can give in return is a story and, if I see you in person, a hug.
For those of you who homeschool, you know how big of a deal it is to be done picking out your curriculum for next year. It is hours and hours of thought and planning and debating. I have researched and researched until I was dreaming about homeschool curriculum. I actually love that part. This year my peeps will be in 8th, 7th, 5th, 3rd, and 1st Grade. Woohoo!
