With the computer back home from its short visit with the surgeon the kids are reminding me how distracting this humming thing can be. A packed inbox and a couple weeks worth of blogs to read drew me in. I definitely have to get back to my “quick checks” in the morning and during naptime. I’m still trying to get us back into a rhythm and have o constantly remind myself that it’s only been four months since Simeon was born. Meal planning is going well so that helps, morning “routines” help us to know what to expect, we’re back to our weekly library trip as well so that helps as far as having new and interesting things on hand for the kids. I’m also trying to just enjoy it all because I tend to get caught up in the “doing” rather than slowing down to take in the “being”.
I’m taking this year to sort of investigate and explore homeschooling more, reading and talking to homeschool families, etc. since Basil will be five and kindergarten age next fall. So far I’m digging a mixture of Charlotte Mason and the classical approach…thankfully Kindergarten is pretty simple so we can just have a lot of fun with it.
Aaron’s new job is a complete blessing. It’s so nice to get paid regularly, not only for sanity’s sake but it makes budgeting that much easier. He is really flourishing there and we are SO thankful he was able to get out of the mortgage industry in time. Plus I never knew commercial batteries could be so interesting…seriously.
Oh and I’m reading Moby-Dick for the first time. It’s so nicely written. Each sentence is lovely. I was convinced it would be a boring, barnacled old sea story but nope. It’s cool.
So there, some good old fashioned rambling.
