Big Day Today

Standard

Today is the culmination of BOTH camps that my children have been dispersed among this week. I will go, with my children that were home with me this week, to one right after the other. The timing worked out well that way 😊Parents and siblings all come and are treated to a demonstration of all that has been learned and done this past week. It is exciting, it is fun, and the kids have been planning it and looking forward to it all week. 😊

It is also loud, intense, and full of people. 😳 

Good vibes accepted here 😉

How Do You Do It?!?

Standard

The night before the last day of camp has me exhaustedly muttering to myself “we’ll never do this again”. I get to this point every year. Then we do it again next year. It’s worth it- the kids have so much fun. But oh my goodness I am so utterly and completely exhausted and worn out and used up.People say to me “I don’t know how you do it” when they find out I homeschool or that I have 8 children. But my hat is off AND I bow deeply to the moms who live my week all year long- those of you who get your kids up and decent and ready and fed and packed and shipped offon time every single morning, and then pick them up and listen to their day and unpack their lunch and get them clean and presentable for the next day AND have them do their chores AND somehow squeeze in quality time… And I can’t even ponder the homework… and the cooking… and the housework…

You guys are amazing. And I am completely wrung out. 

Proud Mama

I just have to brag.

She’s decided not to take AP classes, because she’s going to be doubling up and doing her Junior year and Senior year concurrently next year and graduating early. We all (her, parents, school officials) agree that she should do *either* AP *or* Early Graduation, but to combine them may be too much. Early Graduation is a better fit for her life goals, so there ya go!
