A Fresh Start
*even our attempt at the picture went wrong, my camera lens kept fogging up!!
After attempting to start school two weeks ago we stopped after only 2 days. Nothing like perseverance huh?! It was obvious I was just not there yet with my organization and we were still thick in dust from the dry walling of the wall. So I put my school plans on hold and focused on getting things back to "normal" around the house first. My dear husband got the family room side of the wall complete and I came in with the painting and rearranging and now that side of the house looks pretty normal(actually BETTER than normal, but that is going to be another post). I was then able to move onto the school room which use to be a sun room right off of the family room. The problem was that when the construction was happening in the family room all the furniture got pushed into the SR. Not very helpful at all when trying to teach two kids and keep a toddler busy. I have done the cleaning out and clearing out of said SR now and am ready to move ahead with our school year. We are going to restart down to taking first day pictures again. I am excited to start MFW and also implement a new resource I found through Skylark. I love reading her posts on homeschooling. She introduced me to Tanglewood Education. I instantly bought their pdf for the core book the timeline book and the nature notebook, all for $12. I recommend following my link and checking them out. It works with any curriculum and it was truly just what I was looking for.
