Teaching Thursday

I planned to school through the summer, but my husband wasn't happy with the idea. So I've kinda done a 2 weeks on, 2 weeks off deal so far. Right now, we're at the end of 2 weeks off. And I'm thinking we won't start again until late August. Or better yet, after Labor Day. However, I am in total preparation mode. I don't know how exactly, but it just happened. The reason I don't want to do 2 more weeks on right now is I want to keep prepping. I want to be more purposeful this upcoming year.

We pulled our daughters from public school before school started last year, and started homeschooling them and their younger brother. So we've got a (school) year of experience now. I want a stricter schedule this year. But a more forgiving one as well... Trust me, it makes sense to me. There are certain things that I've tried that just do not work for them. And there are others that they really enjoy and we need much more of!

So I have my new planner, a wonderful friend with several years of experience to lean on for advice, my own year of experience, a couple library cards, and the internet. Let the planning begin!


  1. Sounds very exciting. I imagine your children love learning from you!

  2. I have been an AWFUL teacher this summer. Although, Lyndon has learned how to read 3 of the BOB books, so I guess I haven't been that bad :o)
    You should share some of your favorite finds/organizing ideas!
