The first day in pictures:

To say today “went well” would be a lie…

The pictures are misleading.

Today was hard, long, exhausting, painful, nerve-wracking and “take-me-to-the-nuthouse!!” crazy. There were distractions, and issues with not paying attention or following directions, problems with butting in on each other’s work, you name it. We’ve been out of session for over a month, so we’re gonna have to get in our groove.

To make it *even better*.. I was suffering from a sensory overload day and my 5 year old sensory seeking child Would. Not. Sit. Still. Not for a minute. She was wiggling, and sliding, and bouncing, and tapping her pencil, and rustling her papers, and spinning her pencil, and humming a tune, and getting up and getting down, and… that enough? Imagine what it was like for FOUR HOURS.

My nerves are shot – this is a catastrophe!” (Name that movie.)

But we survived. Mostly. I think I lost a few more brain cells. But tomorrow is a new day, right?

“Of course, right.” (Name THAT movie.)

SO…my fellow homeschoolers: Proof positive that planning isn’t everything. After all, there are some things you can’t plan for!! 😉

Hey, y’all! I'm Amber, and I wear many hats: Pastor's wife, marriage advocate, eclectic homeschooler, mother of three, and domestically challenged homemaker--lovin’ life and livin’ deep in the heart of Texas.
I love to write and I hope to use that wisely, to encourage others, and for God’s glory. I seek purpose in the mundane. I want my kids to see God’s fingerprints throughout all of creation, learning, and life. As I teach our children, God is teaching me through this homeschool journey, too. I love Jesus, family, coffee, words, and the color teal.
