I haven’t had much time to post here – mostly because my husband is working even more hours than before as we try to close the gap from the paycut. He’s burning the candle at both ends (as cliche as that sounds) and I’m trying to keep everything else going. I’m also in the middle of lesson planning for next year. I like to plan a year in advance which pays off in spades when I’m feeling less than inspired or just plain exhausted. That isn’t to say that I don’t adjust or change things along the way, but I’d say 85% of the time we do things exactly as I’ve planned.
I’m also busy turning books into more books. If you’d take a gander at my email inbox the vast majority of the emails lately are from PaperBack Swap (and if you click the link and join I get credit which I’ll turn into books for school for my kids). So far I’ve sent out more than has been sent to me, but I have oodles of requests out for books off of next year’s list.
Aside from that? We’re wrapping up First Grade. As is our custom, we’re taking quite a bit of time off in April and May, but we’ll still wrap things up by the middle of May at the latest. Then it’s on to Second Grade and our Summer Trimester. Not too shabby!
