You know a day so draining it feels like somebody ran you over with a monster truck and then demanded that you run a marathon afterwards?
That was my day today.
Heck that was my day yesterday.
Heck that was my day every day for the past two weeks.
This month’s been exceptionally difficult because on top of raising children, cleaning my house, going to numerous doctor appointments and menu planning and cooking and all that…
I had to homeschool. Which when you don’t use something awesome like Sonlight, which is put together for you, is really dang hard!
We have Sonlight’s P3/4, P4/5 and K cores (people’ve been emailing and asking why we’re not using it for first grade). I was going to use Sonlight for first but we simply can’t afford it this year. I mean, I could squeeze it in with some other sacrifices but I figured I’d just put everything together myself this year and save a little money.
It can’t be that hard.
Oh but it is hard! I do not like planning and putting stuff together!
Oh wait, I LOVE planning and putting stuff together if I have time.
I don’t have time! I don’t even have time to be typing this right now!
So yeah, we’re not doing it this year but will probably jump back in next year with core 1.
So today I went to the Goodwill and dropped off a car full of stuff. Mostly toys and clothes the kids have outgrown. Doing this right before Christmas is interesting. I’m suddenly not even a little bit interested in buying my kids toys. Ever again. I’m thinking they’ll get books and clothes. Which they need.
