This year did not really work out as planned. I had GREAT plans for our homeschool year. I just LOVE planning the year. Back to school planning is "the most wonderful time of the year" to me. (Are you singing it?) Actually DOING what I planned is not really as fun.
Anyway, when I planned, I did not know I was pregnant. Hmm. That sort of threw a kink in the plans. A really, really happy kink, mind you.
I was gagging through the first trimester and sleeping. A lot. Then I felt better. Then I didn't. And somewhere along the way, I dropped a few subjects in favor of doing a GOOD job with what we were doing instead of a crappy job on everything.
We have 3 days left of school. I mean, we have to come back over the summer and finish some things up, but still....this is a milestone. Three more days. I was thinking about all the things I planned that we didn't get to. Some of them I regret.
For example, we had 2 science curriculums and I was really excited about them. But we only made it part-way through the books. Oh well.
And our Bible memory started off really, really good but somewhere along the way, it stopped. Oh well.
Those are just 2 examples. If I looked through my homeschool cabinet right now, I would find a lot of other things that just didn't happen as planned. BUT...it's OK. And I know that.
So I was thinking about the successes of this year instead:
Little Bit became a reader!
Sweetheart became more independent!
And in spite of all the things-that-didn't-happen...I think we had a really good school year.
Tomorrow I'll share about our Keepers Club that we started this year. Off to get these last 3 days over with!!
