In case you were wondering...
It's only 11:10am and I feel like it should be 4:00pm. Ugh.
I am tired, even after going to bed on time last night.
I am frustrated with my two year old. She's sweet but so ornery.
We have been practicing "school" for a few weeks around here to prepare for homeschooling next year. It may be more for me than the kids but it is really showing me alot! Mainly I have just been trying to structure time at home and spend intentional time with kids. For Jesse it's playing chess or math and word games. With Karis it is various sorting activities and coloring. I've been reading alot to both of them. I have started teaching Jesse how to read, hoping that I will have that out of the way before the baby arrives. He is also showing signs of being ready so I thought it would be pretty easy. Some days it is. Today it is not. Mainly because of said two year old. So, something I will have to figure out is what to do with Karis while Jesse and I are doing our reading lessons. And it needs to be something that isn't fun for Jesse so that he doesn't want to do what she is doing! I am feeling a tad overwhelmed this morning so the video went on earlier than it should have, I am trying not to feel like a failure for that. And all this is what all the homeschooling books said to anticipate, so I just take it a day at a time I suppose and learn, learn, learn. Isn't that what it's all about anyway?
Oh, and I suppose I should strap a sack of flour into a sling and carry it around all day. And then every 2-3 hours stop what I'm doing and sit on the couch for 20 mins. Then it may be a little more like next year will be like!!
