Summer………………..School

Posted by mycrazylittlelife on 05/15/2008

It’s almost summer time for most school aged children. Summer is my favorite season! I just love the sun and the smell of chlorine and spreckled* little noses. We usually spend our summers swimming and doing unit studies. This summer however, will be different.

~Queue dramatic drum-roll please.~

We will be schooling. Yep, that’s right. Schooling. Not unit studies or fun learning projects, plain ole school.

This is my fault entirely. I’m not sure how, but we’ve fallen behind. There is no good excuse for it either. Unlike last year, we’ve experienced no traumatic events. I suppose I’ve just gotten lazy. Sure, I could use that line that lots of other homeschoolers use: “We aren’t really behind because we set our own schedule.” But no, that’s not it. This wasn’t planned, nor should it be so. But it is. It is so. And I will pay for my laziness!

Before you feel sorry for my kids….don’t. They will still get to swim and spend time with friends. I’m sure we will have our share of Friday night parties and get-togethers. Not to mention that they really don’t mind doing school through the summer because they get bored otherwise. It’s me that will suffer. Don’t you feel sorry for me? No? I didn’t think so.

 

*Son-speak for freckles:Spreckles. So precious!

No Content

Posted by mycrazylittlelife on 05/01/2008

There is a lot happening in my life right now. However, nothing I care to post about here. Nothing terrible or embarrassing….just nothing I care to write about.

Instead, here are some random things from my brain….

  • Ants. We have ants. Of course, in the most inconvenient places too. Well, is there really a convenient location for a bed of ants? I think not. I need to get some veggie plants in the ground soon, so I am looking for an ‘organic’ solution to my ant problem. Any suggestions?
  • The weather is really wonky right now. It seems everytime I start to store fall/winter clothes a cold snap returns. None of us have room to accomodate two seasons of clothing. This must change.
  • Sparkpeople.com. I love this site! If you are looking for a free way to track your calories, this is it! It’s fabulous. The site also offers message boards, tons of articles, personal pages, etc. Check it out.
  • Reducing my budget in certain areas. Obviously, this is weighing on many minds right now. The cost of gas is rising quickly. ($3.50/gal!) In addition to carefully planning my trips to town, I am also trying to cut my grocery budget. This is proving difficult because we have added a full grown adult and are also accommodating another regular mealtime visitor. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE having these family members. It is just proving difficult to cut the budget when adding members!

Well, those are my thoughts at this moment. Hopefully I can create some content in the next few days!
