The art supplies are purchased.
My “Teaching Cart” is loaded up and ready to roll.
The copywork for the week is laid out.
The chalkboard is freshly scribbled with motivation for us all.
I’ve got my game face on (in between bouts of breathing into a paper bag) and we’ll make our “soft launch” bright and early tomorrow.
This is the week where I figure out all the things I forgot to account for with the new schedule. We’ll do everything BUT Tapestry of Grace until I’m comfortable with the schedule and then we’ll launch The Whole Shebang.
Every year, I add a new student, this time around it’s Willa. She’s ready, but she hasn’t heard me weep my way through Sunrise, Sunset whilst sharpening her pencils. She may change her mind…
Once we figure out our rhythm, I’ll break it down for you and give you a run down of our curriculum, etc. For now, I’m gonna hit the hay because the new schedule dictates a MUCH earlier wake up time for mom and dad.
If you don’t hear from me for awhile, it’s because I’ll be too tired to lift my hands to the keyboard.
When are YOU starting back to school? Are you already knee deep in math drills? Or are you sticking your fingers in your ears and singing, “la la la” until after Labor Day????
