Back to Work and School

I just wanted to update everyone real quick....I am going to try to write something more interesting in the next day or so. Things have been a little crazy....I DID get the job at the supermarket and our family is trying to adjust to all the changes that brings. I was glad we had a couple of weeks to get used to that before school started again. Yes, I am still determined to homeschool the kids....so I homeschool during the day and mid-afternoon I usually head out to work until sometimes 11:30 pm. On Fridays Eric will school the kids while I work a morning shift and then he will go off to work (he has Fridays during the day off) in the afternoon. I know this sounds crazy, and it probably is, but we are going to try to make this work.

We started back to school this week and so far, so good. I LOVE the curriculum I decided to use this year. We have a lot of work to do to get back into the "school" routine. I've been busily working on planning for the year.

Anyway, that's why my blogging came to an abrupt halt a few weeks ago. A combination of learning a new job and working 20 hours a week and planning for the school year has zapped my time and I've hardly had time to look at the computer at all....except to do some research for school! I hope to be making more time for writing as we settle in here a little....don't give up on me! I love writing this blog and don't want to give it up.

The kids and I are working on a diorama of the Nile River this afternoon, so I need to run for now.

Wow. My thoughts and prayers are with you as your hands are definitely full, full, FULL!!! We're just on day 9 of homeschooling, and I can't imagine adding the blogging AND 20 hours at another job!!! Hope you and your family are doing well.
