I am not one of those moms who loves when school starts. Yes, I work from home and yes, I have to get up early early in the morning in order to get the bulk of my work done before certain feet hit the floor in the morning. Yes, it is much easier to not have constant interruptions. Yes.
But despite all the pros to having my two youngest out of the house for 7 hours each day... I DON'T WANT SCHOOL TO START. I already miss them and they don't start school until Wednesday.
For those of you who are scratching your heads because I write HOMESCHOOL curriculum and DID homeschool Ben and Elijah.... Both little boys will be going to a small Christian school this fall. Aaron has been attending a Christian school for three years now and it has been the best fit for him. His greatest struggle since being home is language. He was severely delayed in language (20 words in his own language) and that delay continues to hound him. Immersing him in a language-rich environment has been the best decision. Though John does not have any kind of language delay he definitely could use the English language immersion.
So my two little boys start school on Wednesday.
And I start school on Wednesday too.
Yep. We switched the boys to a new school and at this new school, two afternoons a week I will get to go in and teach our history curriculum (BiblioPlan) to the students there. Which means I get to teach my little guys.
How cool is that?? I am so excited to be doing BiblioPlan in a school setting. We designed it for homeschools, co-ops AND schools but I've never field-tested it in a school. Now I can!
I also teach at our local co-op but thankfully they don't start school until after Labor Day.
John is nervous for school to start. He did get schooling before but not full days. It's going to be a bit of a culture shock for him. Aaron isn't focused on school right now. His birthday is tomorrow and that is ALL he can talk about.
After tomorrow I will again have two 11 year olds under our roof.
Dang I am going to miss them when they are in school!
