OK, so I'll be the first to admit that I have always suffered from delusions of grandeur. I have always had thoughts that are bigger in my head than they turn out to be in reality. Such was this instance with summer school. Now, granted it is still early yet in June, so we have plenty of time to get back on track. Just...not right now. I'm done. I can't seem to motivate myself, much less The Monk, into doing work. I don't want to teach right now. I want to rest. And quilt. And watch TV all day. My brain hurts and my body is tired. And yes, I know, I preached about how The Monk needs a schedule...and he does. I'm feeling the effects of him not being on one right now. But, at the same time, I have to tell you that we are also having fun. We are playing at that splash pad and building things out of clay. We are watching cartoons together and taking naps. There are activities at our local library that we are going to. Right now, we are on vacation. And I have given myself permission to say that is OK. Because it is.
How it all started...
I was a public school teacher for 6 years in a very urban middle school for both 7th and 8th grade. As the red-tape got thicker and teaching became more of a business rather than a place to prepare young minds to enter into the world, I decided that if I was going to work that hard to give an education to someone, it should be my own son. So, my adventures in homeschooling has begun.
