It is so much different than last year. Not just because Maddy is now in kindergarten, but Kate still just needs so much attention. Each lesson is new, so it requires actual teaching. Last year, there was one big lesson, and the rest of the week was review. This year it seems like I have to teach new concepts each time, and not just for one subject, but almost all of them! So every subject seems to take 45 minutes. This is leaving me having to balance things out just perfectly and feeling like I really have to be working and moving and "doing" every part of the day. Once I slack, I get behind. So, obviously that won't last very long, so I am working on how we can make that work.
I am really seeking Gods wisdom in all of this. The how's, the when's, the what's, especially. What do I teach.... do I have too much? Too little? I love that we can spend time on the things that they just do not get. Extra time that they wouldn't have in school. I also think it will take a bit for all of us to get used to all this school stimulation. Here's some highlights from the last few days.
