Enjoying little things

A little shell-shocked from all the decisions this year!  Lost track of the blog trying to make good ones.  As a result, I am now home-schooling my son – a daunting, yet wonderful task.  Much time has gone into researching books, types of teaching, approaches, homeschooling communities and support systems. We’ve spent a lot of time this summer trying out different schedules, books, online methods – so we can have an approach by the time we “really” begin in September.  All in all, we’re both enjoying it, and are finding it an extremely exhilarating approach to learning. Yes, it’s really just an extension of what we began with gardening…still messing with dirt.  All the change was disruptive, so we’re also spending time this summer enjoying the beach, ice cream, playing with the dog and generally recharging our batteries for the new school year. We took advantage of a burst water pipe to have the plumber finally install our built-in fridge ice-maker.  We all giggle every time we run down to the kitchen to get a glass of ice water (cubed or crushed, what a luxury!)…thank God for little blessings.
