Welp! I’ve been slacking on the updates mainly because I haven’t been doing much but sitting on my couch knitting and watching the kids destroy my living room. [shrug]
I am still doing “preschool” with Tiago but he isn’t really to interested all time. I think it’s because I have no idea what I’m doing and I’m using these GREAT tools from other websites but I feel like once we’re done with the activity pack, Tiago and I look at each other like “now what?” So for the time being, most of our “learning” is just play time with books and craft stuff.
So I made the decision. I went ahead and purchased the “Letter of the Week Curriculum” from Confessions of a Homeschooler. I figured for only 10 bucks I can turn Tiago’s preschool time in to something really fabulous. It has everything you need to homeschool a preschooler including printables, lesson plans, activities, crafts. I figured it would be perfect for me because all of the hard work is done 🙂 . I am also viewing it as an opportunity to see what’s expected of a curriculum so that I can tweek it and expand on it in the future.
Also, I’ve spent about 25 hours this week knitting this top for a friend’s daughter’s birthday. The party is tomorrow and the top isn’t done. Helder just said “Put it down. We’ll get her a $10 gift card and then you can mail her the top when it’s done.” I feel like that’s tacky; especially since I’ve spent SO much time working on this.. but alas, he is correct. Considering it’s almost midnight, I have to work at 4 am tomorrow, and I’m still knitting.. a gift card she will get at her party. 🙂
