I'm not missing in action or anything....I'm just busy.
This past weekend was a busy one, having lots of fun with daddy during his days off. The kids have also taken turns being slightly ill (usually just a minor fever that makes them pretty tired). I have also noticed some, well, shall we say, less-than-perfect attitudes and behaviors in my children that need attention. For instance, Talitha has decided that when she doesn't want to obey me, she simply sits down, shakes her head emphatically and says "NO, NO, NO!!". Not exactly the behavior and attitude we are striving towards, eh?
So this week I am in attitude-adjustment mode. I am also reading my Teaching Tips & Techinique book that I purchased from the Weaver curriculum. I will be setting up a new basic schedule, which will include our education times, chore times, etc. I have also been making extra efforts to figure out which of my four children needs their "Momma Tank" refilled and doing just that: with a snuggle on the couch, or time to build a train track set, or simply read a book (over and over and over again).
With all this going on, I simply haven't had time to blog (imagine that?). I also haven't had time to tackle the laundry (and I *like* laundry!). I need to get a good schedule going that actually gives me some "me-time" to recharge as well. Maybe some time to actually play my clarinet - *gasp*
So there ya go - summary: I'm busy.
AND, we are tying to find a place closer to the church, to rent. Hopefully, we can be all moved and settled in by the time our "official" homeschooling begins (whenever *that* is supposed to be? I think when Isaac turns 6). Since we'll be educating with phonics this summer, I'm not all that neurotic about a start date anyways....Daddy's main vacation time (read: one whole month off of seminary) is Sept. so I'm not too hip about starting Sept. 1st anyways.
Lots to think about, lots to plan, lots to implement...

p.s. weight has been fluctuating these last few days, up and down the same few pounds - since I do tend to eat more on the weekends, this is expected. I'm still aiming for a few pounds each week. I have specific goals set for this summer (so-much by a wedding I'm attending, so-much-more by a family trip in Sept., etc) and if I'm not extremely diligent, I'll never make them. I set them up TOUGH! We shall see....keep an eye on the ticker up there and hold me accountable, please!! In love - of course! ~lori
