How’s my homeschooling mamas?
I am so excited about this year! We started school on the 6th and while this is not my first go around with homeschooling, I have learned so many new sites and platforms over the summer that my children will probably be confused. I am like a kid in a candy store, I want some of everything!
For those of you who do not know, we are option 3 homeschoolers which basically means, as far as the school board is concerned, you leave me alone and I will leave you alone. Honey, because I do not have time!
The biggest obstacle for me is my littles -3 and under. I just want to get in with them and play in the mud and find worms, talk about particles and fossils, rocks and dirt. You know, the fun stuff! But my older children want to do big kid stuff… they’re so boring!
So this year I am going to teach the littles while my bigs are at recess! Ah HA! Chile, these epiphanies I have are so simple but great at the same time, like why didn’t I think of this 4 years ago? Nevertheless, here I am enjoying the train ride, no matter how slow. lol
Today we did basics like math, handwriting, and French. So tomorrow we are freed up to do life science! I swear I am more excited than the children… No, really. We will be learning about the life cycle of a butterfly. Hopefully, I will be able to upload video to our YouTube page, MsMyRush <—- Plug!
My 17-year-old has 1 more credit he needs so this year he will only be studying for his ACT and the credit he will be achieving is computer technology which consists of him moving and rebuilding my website while creating his own YouTube page. Yes! Use them, honey. Makes less work for me and gains knowledge for him #WinWin
Well, that’s my check-in for today, let me get my giddy butt ready for bed.
