Well, Little Things Thursday Friends. Here we are again. It seems that Thursday comes so quickly, which proves my theory that this summer was way to0 fast.
I’ve slowly moved from denial to acceptance regarding school’s imminent start. The school room has been tidied. Supplies have been purchased.
Now, I am busy trying to figure out exactly how to implement it all.
We are beginning a new writing program called Institute For Excellence in Writing (IEW) this year and I’m really excited about that. I’m still figuring out what this program entails. But, at least I am putting together folders and plans. My daughter is still doing Sonlight, but our boys just need a year to work on specializing in a few subjects. This year will be very Language Arts intensive for them. Loads of writing will be on the menu.
I am really looking forward to the benefits of giving ourselves permission to do exactly what we need. I can tend to be a “do it all” person and that’s just not going to work this year in our schooling. I want this year to be purposeful in how we educate our children. It always has been, but I’m giving myself a little more wiggle room than I have in the past. Slow and steady is my motto.
So, yeah…I’m feeling a little more grounded about summer’s end.
How’s your summer?
