Two Months Later…

I don’t really know how I miss two months at a time…

April was really busy. And kind of blah. I don’t know if I was just dealing with seasonal depression issues or what. But now it’s May šŸ™‚ And it’s cold again. Oh well.

In April, Keith and I went to Cincinnati for a giant homeschool convention. It’s a big corporate one. the best part was we stayed in a fancy hotel for three nights without the kiddo. So it was a nice little getaway for just the two of us. We didn’t hit every session, which was nice. We managed to spend some time together just being together. Yay! I miss him, a lot, during, well, during life. Our schedule is kind of crazy, so we don’t always get to spend a lot of time together, just the two of us.

For Little Man, we decided for preschool to start this fall with The Homegrown Preschooler. I had originally intended to go with something else, but on the first night, I attended one of THP’s workshops, and I fell in love. Their curriculum is super easy, it’s all play based, it’s modeled after classical education, and I just love it. Plus, one of the ladies is an adoptive mom, and she even speaks at the Created for Care conferences (one of these days I will attend. Oh yes, one of these days…). I can’t say enough good things about their philosophy, their curriculum, and their book. And the two women were just super friendly and warm and engaging. Plus, hello, transracial family. You don’t see that too often in the homeschooling community “on the platform,” so, yes. Love.

Let’s see…

I’m still running. Actually running now. I finished couch to 5k, and was up to four miles when I was attacked by bronchitis. Traitor body. Tomorrow is supposed to be 4 1/2 miles, but I about died at 2 today, so, we’ll see.

I start teaching in August. I’m reading and studying and reading and studying. I am trying not to freak out or get overwhelmed by everything. I figure if God called me to do this, He’ll take care of it, right?


What’s up with you?
