A whole lotta nothin'...

(In case you've been wondering what I've been up to.)

I guess that sounds bad, that I haven't been doing much of anything. But oh well! And it's not entirely true. I've done plenty of reading, writing and teaching, we just haven't really gotten out much this week. Right now we're planning on starting school in two weeks, probably August 15th. Next week I've got to start ordering books and all that. Right now I think (fingers crosses) that I've got it all figured out. I'm not the type of homeschool mom to just order one big box of curriculum for the entire year. For one thing, it's expensive that way and it sort of cramps my style. It's a lot more work to pick and choose everything, but I like it that way!

Anyway, it's gearing up to be a really busy and exciting fall! Obviously, there's Elijah starting first grade, Matthew going back to class at the end of August (he's taking three classes this semester as opposed to two, and working), our mom's group will probably start around September (hopefully I can fit it in to our school schedule) and Elijah has his first football practice on the 9th! Whew! I think I'm becoming one of those 'busy people'. At least, that seems busy to me! Not to mention all the other things that will be happening. I'd like to start potty training Sophia soon. Sounds crazy, I know, but I swear I started Elijah at this age too! Also, we'll be having family visiting in October (Matthew's family and hopefully my Grandparents again!)

Hmmmm anything else? Oh in the meantime I'm finishing up editing my first book, it's slow-going, but we're getting there. And I officially started writing my second book (a follow-up to the first.) I'm just typing up my outline and writing a little of the rough draft, but so far I'm loving it!

So, it's sounds like a lot, but it' s a lot to look forward to as well.

  1. I did pick and choose Kindergarten, but I'm a big box girl now. I know it is totally fun to shop around, though. That is the disadvantage. There is a big curriculum fair tonight, but I'm not going since I already have everything.

    You are a busy mama! Good luck with the books and starting first grade!
