I started out the day determined to get some homeschool planning done. I originally planned to start our school back up on August 1st, but now it’s being pushed back to August 9th because of company and other obligations. Still, I know how quickly time goes by, even if I feel like I have a lot of time, I know I don’t really.
So I went down stairs to get busy and found this…
I kept giving the children things to take downstairs for me, things were piling up. Plus, I did some digging around in there too. There was NO way I could plan while it was like this. I need things orderly in order to think orderly! It took me until 3pm. You can see the clock says 8:30, I actually started earlier, I just didn’t remember to take a picture until then. We had lunch for 45 minutes in the middle, but the rest of the time I was organizing. My book shelves have NEVER been so organized. I always wanted my books organized, but just never did it. Well, I did it today!
Books are separated by categories that make sense to us and LABELED!
And the Tot School Shelves.
Some of these things I’m getting rid of just because I can’t get them to fit anywhere nicely.
This is what the room looked like at 3:00. Ahhh…now I can breathe and plan! I managed to get 8 weeks of lessons planned for Strawberry. I had to stop and take the boys to work, then it was dinner time, then Marshmallow just wanted to be held and nursed, so I didn’t get any other lessons planned, but it’s all set up and ready for me to work on again tomorrow, AFTER I go grocery shopping.
It’s almost time to start back up! Are you ready?
P.S. Just a little something extra to make you smile.
