Today I had the kids come with me and "help" me reorganize the schoolroom and hang out and play in there with me while I looked through all my stuff and got things ready to go for real on Monday. We needed some transition time in getting used to being in there, as it is a basement room that we don't use a whole lot outside of school. We are pretty relaxed homeschoolers, but we have a fantastic school space, so we try to get down there 3-4 mornings per week and I have a few things I work on with them.
Anyway--it was so fun in there today--so much excitement and promise of the year that I wish I could bottle this energy and goodwill and draw off of it in January or February. Heck--maybe even by the end of next week! It reminds me of buying my books for my college classes; I tent to idealize the semester and get all giggly and girly about what fun we'll have.
I hope all of you who are starting up school right now are having a similarly giggly time with your littles!
