Battling the battles!
We are at home this week, and only for this week before we head back to Melbourne for 4-5 weeks. Right now I can hear myself think, the birds chirping, the wind rustling the leaves on our cocos palms out the window, the clock ticking, and the keys on this type pad.
I now really appreciate the quiet times, where I can gather my thoughts, regurgitate something I just read lately or someones opinion about something!
Who else starts battling at this time of the year with homeschooling?
Even though we are on a weeks break from learning, in the back of my mind I'm praying for strength to even begin again next week. I would love to hear that you have these feelings too.
Being an isolated home schooler I think (even though I know it's not true) that I am the only one battling right now!
But amazingly it really helps to hear other home schooling Mothers say..yep, I have my days where I want to throw the towel in and just lay in bed and read all day without being disturbed!
Please tell me!!!!
It's quiet here because my gorgeous husband has taken the children to the beach and I cannot believe that I chose to stay home in the quiet and not go to my most favourite place in the world! But that's what you do for that peace and quiet where I can choose whatever I want to do.
I'm am so waffling right now aren't I?
Anyway, I am excited to be in Melbourne and we are going to make the most of all that the city has to offer us. I've saved up some money just to spend in the city...can't wait!
Seize the day!
