The Land of Big Children...

 
 

 I spent a some time last night gathering books, papers, and projects for our last homeschool review of this school year.  I finished up the final draft of lesson plans and our attendance sheets and gathered everything up into a huge bag to bring to the library for Miss Eloise to look through.  This was the last year we will have two little scholars...  Mister Button will be joining us for lessons as a kindergartener in September.  It is hard to believe that we will have three school-aged children.  We've been moving into uncharted territory for awhile now (Potty training!  Weaning!  Sleeping through the night!) and though there is always the hope that we will someday add to our little brood, we've reached a good place...  The Land of Big Children and all of the fun things that they can do!

We are heading there, too. For the first time in a long time, I am not pregnant or nursing. It feels like uncharted territory. I am trying to enjoy it and be thankful as things begin to get a little bit easier. Our last two babies have been incredibly high needs (and the youngest still it). I am looking forward to the day when they are all a little bit older and how much easier it will be to do things like... get out the door :)

Hugs to you!

Welcome! It is wonderful place to be! My 4th will be joining us in the fall too...If I can get him away from the Legos long enough! I still have moments of surprise seeing my "babies" suddenly as tall as me.

I'm there with you (Michelle!). We're potty training and I would love to be done with diapers by Christmas. Miss Moppet loves to be a baby-baby around me so it's doubtful, but at least I have experience urging toddlers to reach milestones!

I'm trying to be happy in the moment, but as I slog through bedtime, that sounds so wonderful that I can hardly wait.

My Mother (when I was in library school dreaming of a happy future that included new clothes, truth be told, now that I look at how I was back then), told me many times, just enjoy the season you are in now, you only get it once. I am so glad she told me that (repeatedly!!!) as I look back on that year of growth and struggle and am able to see a lot of beauty in it.

That sounds like a lovely place to be and I do look forward to it. I love my littles so (I have three thus far - aged almost 5, 3, and 1), however we will be just starting our homeschool journey in the fall. My husband was homeschooled and I was not. New territory. It is always a wee bit frightening to me to be in new territory. Most often I find I'm telling tales of how hard something will be. It rarely is anywhere close to what I imagine!

Would you mind sending me a sample of your lesson plans that you are showing your librarian? This is my first year homeschooling. As a public school teacher my plans were different and over the course of this year I haven't settled on a way I'm happy with for my three kids. Thanks! Orthodoxmother
