Hello everyone! My Spiritual Sisters!
I'm sorry I have been absent. I'm really bad at long threads, but this one I still come to read each time it comes to the top of my subscriptions folder.
I've been very busy at home this month. My son and I finished all our lessons for 2nd grade, and the virtual academy has it's official last day of school this Friday. I'm excited not to log attendance for a few weeks
And I got his standardized test score from April. He did really well, he met all the standards, and just barely missed exceeding the standard in one of the subjects. I have lots to still do to tidy up our school boxes. Punching holes and putting papers in order. I'm not sure if I have to do anything with all of it. But we aren't going to throw it out until next year. Then I can re-use the binders. I should take pictures of all the stuff we have LOL
My daughter asked me on Friday in a very 'attitud-ish foot-stomping' kinda way "I wanna do SCHOOL mama!!" So I really need to get crackin and figure out a curriculum for a pre-k student. She really wants to learn how to read. I'm not sure if I should use a phonics system or if I should go with sight words like ds did. He learned how to read in public school, so I have no idea how to go about this. She has a few sight words from playing on Starfall, so I am tempted to do a bit of both with her. Sight and phonics. We'll see.
My husband has been work, work, working. Lots of Saturdays, unless I need him here
He didn't work last weekend and hasn't worked this weekend, but he might go in tomorrow. He can get more *work* done when no one is there
He's a Team Leader, so he has lots of responsibility with helping his teammates.
I am just trying to find a way to enjoy the summer, keep a little bit of learning going every day, and trying to find that balance between *Super Mom* and *Amanda*. Which is why there are dishes piled in the sink, and a pile of clean laundry in the living room
: But I'm more than half way through a good book (2nd novel by Kathy Reichs), and have enjoyed my Week of Summer.
OH! and I put my class deposit on a Childbirth Educator training. I can't wait to dive back into all of it! I miss the birth world, and my birthy friends
I'm also enjoying this new leaf of learning I have turned over.
Between my Wicca 101 and now Childbirth Ed my brain finally feels like it's working and capable of work. The training isn't until October, but I'm SO flippin excited!!
Anyway that is what is going on here
I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend! Blessed Be!
