Homeschool Planning Session {LIVE}

Okay, today my mom has the children and I am supposed to be planning out our school year.  We don’t start until the first week in October each year on strict orders from the principal, as he wants us to make the most of the summer season and doesn’t want me spending all of August obsessing  planning school.

Brian and the children left around 9:00 ish.  I have ‘put on my face’ (aka make up and hair), had breakfast, responded to some emails, checked blogs.

10:00 am went down to the abyss schoolroom {{sigh}} to see what I could see.  Apparently there was a disaster, tornado, earthquake or something, because I am sure there is a table in the center of that room . . . somewhere.  We didn’t finish last year all orderly and organized so books are everywhere!  I tried to get the principal to call of the school year, but he says we must plow on.

10:15 am can’t stop thinking about painting furniture and the awesome, huge, beautiful barn doors the my husband picked up for me yesterday.  Nor can I stop thinking about the plans he showed me last night to make our garage into a “Barn Boutique” for all my {re}imagined furniture!!!  Yes, my husband rocks!



These babies are HUGE!  We got them for $10 a piece!!!  They are going to be the ‘walls’ of my new ‘boutique’.  Happy dance, everyone!!

Okay, 10:23 printing up Course of Study for each child (6 of them this year, 10th, 9th, 5th, 3rd, 2nd and preschool!)

I will check in later . . . pray Winking smile

10:45 am decided to run a load of laundry, sweet distraction, how sad is that?!  Went to the abyss schoolroom again, really!?  When did this happen?  Brought a large container with me this time, lugged up a bunch of books to go through.  Smashed my finger and drew blood.  Still smiling though, love my job.

11:10 am  realizing I need to order more books than I was planning on.

More later . . .

11:45 am seriously making some headway!!  Yeah!

12:20 pm have 90% of everyone’s school work chosen and ordered.  Now, the hard part, planning it, making copies and scheduling!  Well, it is not hard if I prayerfully go about it, trusting the Lord to pull it together. 

I definitely think I have made some major progress and am going to reward myself by paint two cute chairs!

2:00 pm  Painted two chairs a color I didn’t think I would like, but am actually liking it!  cool!  Ate lunch and am taking a break.  it is so quiet here . . .  the UPS lady came and said, ‘where are all those kids?’  I just smiled.

3:22 pm  I have been painting and waxing frames, eating Honeycrisp apples with Nutella (shhh, don’t tell anyone) and now I must rest, for I have a date tonight with my rockin’ husband who  brought me home those gorgeous barn doors!

Have a great weekend!
