Jumping In!

Today is day one of our homeschool year for 2013-2014. My whole family was gone all last week at church camp, and we are all dragging from no sleep. Friday was our anniversary, so my husband and I went out for that Saturday evening, and my best friend came into town so yesterday afternoon and evening we all got together. You should know that when my 3 best friends and I get together, it’s always to the wee hours of the morning. I got home at 12:30 this morning, but I had a very fitful night of sleep because I drank too much coffee after dinner.

Needless to say, today is NOT the ideal day to start our year. I am trying to write their work for today in their planners in a few minutes before they get up, they are going to be rather unpleasant since they will be tired, the list of things goes on. However, if we don’t start today it will affect our schedule during the holidays, so a grumpy few days is worth suffering through to have our time at Thanksgiving and Christmas. Still, it’s hard to keep that in mind when I’m falling into my coffee mug this morning.

I know that no matter what day I chose to start there would be reasons to wait and grumpiness to deal with, so I might as well stick with my plan. Here goes nothing!




  1. The holiday shoul be longer, shouldn’t it?
