we have IT.
Were coming to the end of our school year and cant hardly see straight for NEED of SUMMER.
This week we had Monday off because Dad was home and we cleaned the house and ORGANIZED.
Which is something that NEEDS to be done..BUT DOSEN’T get done on SAT/SUN doesn’t because of our schedule these days.
I work on Friday AND Saturday nights from 8pm-3am.
Which means that I am TIRED on Sunday and don’t get ANYTHING done.
And all THAT does is make MONDAY our SUNDAY.
And YESTERDAY I had a mini-epiphany.
I realized that i was going CRAZY stressing because we are having a hard time doing our bookwork.
We were getting OTHER stuff done but…we were having a hard time SITTING IN OUR DESKS.
I'm not going to lie…we are NOT SITTING in our desks much the last few weeks.
We have been doing ALOT of gardening, outside nature studies and generally just enjoying the BEAUTIFUL WEATHER.
AND because I like to be ORGANIZED and ON TOP OF IT…I have been STRESSED because of the LACK of STRUCTURE we have been getting.
Jay LAUGHS and says….”The kids are FINE. Let em’ be. QUIT STRESSING!”
Then yesterday, It HAPPENED…..
I realized “It”.
We don't HAVE to be so stressed and structured.
We can ease up a bit.
We can RELAX….
the kids are FAR BEYOND their grade levels in MOST subjects.
Sheba(Pre-K) has started her Kindergarten Curriculum.
Malachi(K) can READ and has started on his 1st grade curriculum.
Shasha(1st) reads at about a 5th grade level and is BORED with 1st grade math.
And Zeek(3rd) has made HUGE IMPROVEMENTS in his reading this year and has TESTED OUT of his last 3 math units.
We eased up on History this year …MAINLY because of a book I read.
THIS BOOK to be exact.
There it is.
Were RELAXING and having some Uschool-ish Days.
Here is what we have done THIS WEEK SO FAR:
Happy ALMOST SUMMER!!!
