The older boys have been keeping up with their schoolwork and helping Andy as well. So all I had to do was jump back into the mix. I DO like homeschooling. I even like the subjects I don’t like. It was so nice to have my brain back in working order.
After school, we went to the library. I just love the Friends of the Library bookstore. I was able to pick up about 1/3 of the reading list for our Literature course and I also found double copies of 5 of 8 of our Shakespeare reading for this semester. I tossed in a couple of books for me to read and a couple of books that Andy will like. $10.70!!!!! How exciting is that? That will save us about $150++ if we had purchased new books. Yay us!
In the meantime, things here are wonky. Good. But wonky. Danny leaves and goes to his college classes. Tae kwon do is no more. Ian and Dan are both closing in on their Eagle Scout projects. Gahh … I can’t handle unstructured. Before I had kids, I was all about unstructured. Funny how things turn around and bite you in the butt.
OK – I’m talking myself down for now. Change is good and we’ll get over this hump and move on … right???? In the meantime, I’m channeling my angst into scrubbing the house and rearranging furniture and micromanaging those inanimate objects that allow me to micromanage.
