I'm still in planning mode around here. Schedules, syllabi, chore lists are all being typed into word documents. All the kids, especially Beany tend to get into trouble when I am at the computer too much so this is all being done in the early morning hours or when they are asleep in the evenings.
This is part of what I love - the planning. I don't know what it is but having it all before me, neatly organized, ready to go, is so worth the time it took all summer. I always enjoyed this part about being a classroom teacher, and learned, as I am learning now, that for me, "failing to plan is planning to fail". There are some moms I know that take a less intense approach to the planning. It suits them better not to plan so much. They are excellent teachers. I guess it's a personality thing.
I'll be back with the results of these days of planning, and hopefully more great pictures of the kids. They are having a great summer!
