I had thought that I might write a homeschool post this evening. Not like the recent ones, where I am just catching up on the past year. But more like a.. here we go, beginning our year, deep calming breaths...
I realized this weekend that what needed to happen was not lots more plannings, lists, scheduling... but perhaps a little extra rest, a little creative time for myself, (something that has been neglected the past couple weeks as I felt school time so soon approaching). Long days of play for the girls, with dinner and bedtime a little extra early. And of course enjoying making the house nice and tidy for our new week.
So I feel that we are ready to begin our lessons, but I still don't quite have the time to organize and share my thoughts. Soon though. I hope to share much more here as we go through our year.
And some of you have been offering so much homeschooling inspiration and words of wisdom, thank you thank you thank you!
Now, I really hope you do not mind another set of camping photos. I admit it may be getting to be a little much, I will spare you the remaining 100...
Such tall trees!
This place sure did entice our imaginations!
I love when they love each other so much and just have to be together.
And more important camp chores. We did our best to leave our camp just as we had found it.
When we first made our fire circle we carefully removed the clumps of dirt and vegetation and brought the pieces to a cool spot down by the river.
We filled in the circle before we left and gently placed the plants back into their original homes.
And then we headed back towards our home.
Well wishes to you all as you journey through these coming days!
