Things are starting to settle down over here. Kind of. I’m waiting on extra man power for the last bit of heavy lifting… and I haven’t touched any of the boxes the movers put in the garage. But- the main parts of the house are coming together very nicely, and it’s looking less and less like we are in transition, and more and more like we are at home.
True to my typical fashion, the two most important rooms in the house, the kitchen and the homeschool room have received the most attention from me. They are ALMOST done, and I am just giddy. The kitchen is now open and I am able to get back to making real food instead of frozen easy meals… and the homeschool room is liveable for lessons!
The chairs for our school table are still MIA in a box somewhere, and I need to get our displays, pocket charts and other goodies set up, but the bones of the room are coming together. I think I would like a giant world map, and a couple other colorful things to bring it all together, but…. it’s open for business!
I feel like I have said it again and again, but I am ready to get back to “normal” life. We do still have quite a bit of adjustment ahead of us…. Hubby will be working a new job, with new hours, new travel opportunities, and a boatload of new responsibilities. The new baby is coming (quickly, it seems!) and we’ll have to get used to that new dynamic. Everything is just new… and will be for the time being.
In the meantime though, it’s just us, doing what we do. Today, I wanted to share a day in the life for Little Miss right now- she’s getting settled in and getting used to the new routine too! Check out what she did with Mother Goose Time today:
So Bug and I tackled factors, and made arrays, and basically melted my brain out of my ears, because I am pretty sure I was absent the whole time we were taught this in the third grade. Heaven help me!
And then over lunch, we talked about what you do if you get hurt while playing, and how to get a grown up to help- which wrapped up today’s safety lesson with Mother Goose Time!
And now, it’s time to run out the door to take the kids to gymnastics class! Whew!
