T-Minus 7 Days...

We officially begin our homeschooling in 7 days, and I am nowhere near as prepared as I wanted to be at this point. We have had the plague-S around here the last week and a half. Four of us have had strep throat, 4 of us have had the stomach virus (my husband and I had both), and my sweet daughter just had a coughing-fever running funk. Therefore, we have just been trying to survive taking care of sick kids while feeling awful ourselves. Then there is the Christmas clutter of the ridiculous amount of toys the kids got to find a place for.

I do know everything I will be covering for the first few weeks. I have put lots of thought into it, but haven't had time to put work into it. I have been piling all my resources in one room and have bought or collected lots of things. But, I really need to get in there and organize all of it. I also have a plan book that I need to write all those ideas running around in my head down in. I need to prepare things like flashcards and lapbooks. These are all chores I am really looking forward to. I'm just praying for health and productivity in this next week. I really want to hit the ground running with the kids so a fun first week will convince them that this whole homeschooling thing really will be cool after all!

Hi, me again!
I am sorry you have all been so ill! That is one very nice thing about getting out of big schools - less illness!

FYI: the overall advice is that the adjustment to homeschooling is harder on the parents than the kids. Expect them to SOAR!!

Sending you God's healing,
