I've been thinking more about homeschooling this year. We just spent 24 hours in the car driving home from our trip out west.
There was a lot of time to think.
Here are ideas that are important to me:
*Letter writing. We just renewed friend and family relationships. What a perfect time to work on letter writing! I think Sunday afternoons will be letter writing times. I'll invest in a bunch of stamps and envelopes so that we won't have any excuses. And the kids can email, too.
*I need "available" time each day. I tend to overfill my day with tasks. I'm going to be sure to block out 30-60 minutes each afternoon to simply be available to answer questions, run errands, listen, and otherwise help my family with what is important to them.
*E13 needs karate lessons.
*I still think that small unit studies might be the way to go . . . especially as we're hoping our home will sell and we'll get to move soon. We're facing a great deal of upheaval, and small, discrete study units may be the way to go until we're facing a stretch of steadiness again.
