a week of firsts

Sep 10, 2011

I am ready for a nap. I have mountains of laundry staring me in the face…yes, they are that high…AND tripping me as a I walk in and out of the laundry room a gazillion times today. I have been working for about four hours and I have four loads folded and the fifth and sixth in process. I have also been working on my Worldviews and YOU! class and reading Sophie’s World. I need to read another 75 pages in that one today to meet my weekly reading goal that will enable me to finish it by October 6 when I will lead a discussion on it.

The first few weeks of September always wear me out a little. They are oh, so exciting, but they are also a big shift from our summer routine. This week we have had a whole host of “firsts”. First voice lessons, first violin lessons, first day at iFamily, first day of me teaching a class full of youth, first night of karate, and first day of teaching gymnastics (I somehow survived all six of my classes with flying colors!). We also had a colloquium at our home on Thursday on The Great Divorce, a day of working on my soon-to-be-released super-rad Homeschooling Mama Planner, a trip to the library book sale where we scored a two plastic bags of books for five buckaroos, and a scouring of all local used book stores for the complete Narnia series (found four of the full-color editions so far!).

Now my laundry is desperately needing to be caught up and I want to curl up in bed and have a nap. Since I am going to a church meeting in just a few hours, it doesn’t look Iike I will get one!
