Well it seems to be the time of the year when many are homeschool planning. I am seeing posts and links everywhere, with tips and advice and so many ideas! Yes, even I am in this mode here. It just must be that time of the year!
So as I'm planning, the first day is always hard.
I have dreams,
I have visions,
I have ideas
Oh so many!!!
I literally start thinking, how can I add more hours to my day?
Let's see we could start our day, at 4:00, no that doesn't mean everyone will be cranky and tired. Definitly not, and especially not me!
Then we could school until 4:00- I mean the neighbors can't really plan until then anyways, by the time they get home, have a snack and work on school or home responsibilities, right?!?!
REALLY, REALITY CHECK!!!
Then I decided, no what I need to do is edit, sort and maybe even subtract!!!
For some reason as a homeschooler, I think that our school needs to be extra special, at all times and in all ways. It needs to be super cool, amazingly awesome and at ALL times! Yet in the mist of all that, life is well life!
I mean come on how many of us think that every moment of our life is just that?
EXTRA SPECIAL, AT ALL TIMES AND IN ALL WAYS!
ALL THE TIME!
Last time I checked a mom's everyday chores and responsibilities are NOT there!
(laundry, changing diapers, doing the dishes, mopping the floors, and especially cleaning the toilets!)
Last time I checked a dad's everyday responsibilities are NOT there!
(boring meetings, paperwork, restrictions, traffic and oh taxes!)
So let's face it, homeschool needs to be extra special, super cool, amazingly awesome, but only sometimes, and sometimes it's just plain work!
