I have so many deep thoughts that I would like to write out and expound upon and share with the whole internet world. Just yesterday, I sat down and managed to write out a few paragraphs about a topic that has been on my mind lately, but that’s as far as I got. A few paragraphs.
Who knows when I’ll finish that blog post.
All I can think of is that we have 10 days left. 10 school days. 10 days to finish everything for 4th grade and 2nd grade and hope that they got enough to last over the summer and make it to 5th grade and 3rd grade.
Like many of you, we are just hanging in there right now. Our bathroom needs to be deep cleaned. Our kitchen floor hasn’t had a real mopping in weeks (Maybe that doesn’t matter though, because enough items have been spilled on it in that time frame that all of the spot cleanings equal one whole one).
The lawn needs to be mowed. The laundry is backed up again. The garage is a wreck.
It’s that time of the year, and I’m grateful because it means that summer break is coming! When you homeschool, it’s not just your kids who are schooling, it’s you too. And I’m just as burnt out as they are.
