The beginning of January…a fresh start…a new beginning…this time things will be different. That’s what most of us think. Why shouldn’t we homeschool moms be any different? I spent last week organizing fussing over all the school shelves. I spent the past two nights tweaking a schedule I had already planned out extensively over the summer. “We must have a place for everything with everything in it’s place before we begin!” I emphatically shouted to myself. This time things will be different. This time we will stay on track. This time I will make a plan. This time my plan will go accordingly. This time my kids will sit patiently, shout hooray when I announce it’s time for school, come running excitedly when I call, and quietly color as I read great literature and teach them about our founding fathers.
Just got interrupted in the middle of this post by a 2 year old dumping toilet water all over the laundry room floor. Which, I’m pretty sure, just made my statement for me about our first day back in school!

Oh…who am I kidding? Maybe will get a post in about our school week by the end of the week. Obviously daily isn’t going to work!
