So I should do some actual solid planning, right? I feel like I should have tidy bowls of math manipulatives and sharpened pencil crayons and all our new books lined up in a row. What I have is lego all over the floor, chewed-on markers, and the reality that the girls still wake me up five times a night. But only twice or three times each!
I would like to work out a generous-on-the-slacking, loose weekly routine of things to do in the morning, plus trying to have the energy to do reading and math and copywork with Nat in the afternoons. Oh, also I have two different homeschool groups I'd like to attend every couple of weeks, but those would be afternoon things, so I really need to find some reliable sitters for the girls. Nat needs some more friends his age, and the best place to mine for those would be homeschool events, I think. Everyone else is in all-day school by his age.
How did we end up with an extrovert?
I'd also like to do the Royal Ontario Museum every couple of weeks, maybe with Judith, or with Judith and Samantha the Wonderful Mother's Helper. I'm hoping to do more history reading, and therefore be able to get out of the strictly Natural History area. I'm not sure Nat will ever be okay with the Roman heads looking at him. Too much like Weeping Angels, too much Doctor Who.
