Got home late last night – worked hard today getting Christmas stuff put away, cleaning house (not that bad since Phil kept up with everything), and moving things around to make way for the school room! Tomorrow is going to be busy with various things re: pulling the kids out of PS, ordering the curriculum (finally) and everything else that comes along.
As a wife and mom, we always have “something” we have to get done. Be it laundry (yuck), housework, cooking, etc. Since I’m a work at home mom, the list is even longer, and now that I’m going to be a homeschooling mom, well, you get the picture.
This next week is going to be spent dealing with the paperwork involved in unenrolling the kids, opening new packages of curriculum, planning out the “classroom” and just getting things in line. It’s important to me that the girls are involved in the process (well, except the unenroll part). I want them to own the school, and be proud of it. Their current assignment is to come up with a good name for the school – I think it will be important for them to identify with some organization, plus, it will serve us well to look more professional (i.e. discounts).
In the meantime, we are enjoying our last day in Missouri – sun is shining, weather is decent, and most importantly – there is NO SNOW!
