It has been waaaaay too long since my last post, but this whole pandemic really threw a wrench in my initial blog plans. I started this with the intention of giving accounts of our adventures exploring new parks around Columbus, new activities to do with kids, etc. Well, none of that is happening, as we continue to stay away from crowds and public places – no new parks (just sticking to our small neighborhood one), no new activities (swimming at my grandma’s house was our summer fun), and so I really didn’t know what to write about.
Well, after one day of homeschooling, that has changed. I invite you to come along on this journey with me in attempting to educate a 7 year old know-it-all, and a 5 year old sensitive princess. It’s about to get real in here! 10 minutes into our new daily school routine and I thought oh my gosh, I’m on the Titanic. No, the Titanic was moving forward part way into its journey. I’m still in port and the iceberg is moving towards me! By 20 minutes into our school day, Eli was spinning in his desk chair (head leaned back staring at the ceiling) and singing “This is boring, this is boring,” while Ava cried in her desk chair asking for a “squeezy hug” because school was just too hard…I asked her to color a picture of a tiger I printed out.
Welcome aboard my sinking Titanic! Happy first day of school!
