Yippy!! It's girls' night out! All I can say is "it's about time!" LoL. No seriously, I am very excited to be going out. Can you guess who I am going with? Wendy of course! We use to go out once a month for a girls night but she had a baby a 14 months ago and then I got Emily in June...life just got VERY busy. But we made it a point to make time for this (actually, she is very funny. One day over the weekend she called me and asked me my availability this week at night. She said she was asking me out on a date.) Most of the time when we make these nights it is just the two of us (it can get complicated to get too many people to get their schedules all lined up, where do we then go, who's driving...ect., ect.) We go for dinner and then do something else (ex. shopping, movies, stuff like that). No pressure. Just a night out. Tonight we are planning on going for Tai food and then go and see the movie Juno---I'll let you know what I think about the movie tomorrow.
School is going better. This is our 3rd week back after taking such a long break. Every week is getting better and there are areas that I know I can work on myself. Atleast I can say that we have been getting through the 3 R's daily and a couple of times I have been able to do some reading for history. I think I know what we are laking though....we are lacking F-U-N! I read a post today on Sprittibee and it reminded me of 3 things.
1. Flexibility!! One of the reasons I home school.
2. It is NORMAL to homeschool past lunchtime. I have this awful nagging feeling that my day is blown if I don't get it ALL done before lunch. I think I am setting myself up for failure that way (especially since I have to occupy a 1 y.o. until she takes her nap at 10 a.m.)
3. FUN!! LAUGHTER!! I think we are in desperate need of that around here. I spend so much time working on getting the 3 R's done that I forget about FUN!
I would LOVE to hear what others do for curriculum that is fun (and easy too)! Please leave a comment and let me know.
