It’s spring here in New England. Which means there are LOTS of things calling for attention. Baby chicks, baby ducks, baby turkeys. Preparing garden beds, mulching garden beds, planting, weeding, cleaning. And then there’s the end of the school year push. Every year in May I can see the end of the year coming and completely lose my schooling focus. This year it happened at the end of April. So we entered May mode in April, but now I’m ready for summer mode and it’s still May. It’s pretty difficult keeping children on track when I’m not!
Plus this year we have to pull together final grades for Josh, who is graduating in just over 2 weeks! And we don’t have only final grades to pull together, but grades for 9th and 10th grades which were stored oh-so-safely (NOT!) on a computer that decided to have several hiccups along the way. I still have all his work, but it’s stored in the basement under all the things we haven’t needed to access in the last 2 years. So in order to get to all his old work, I need to go through the stuff on top. And it makes sense to sort what I’m going through while I’m going through it, right? So let’s just say that I have a few things on my things to do list.
And on top of it all is the oh-my-goodness-the-baby’s-coming-in-as-little-as-9 weeks! I still haven’t gotten through my pre-Sophie project list, and she’s 20 months old! I think my spring and summer are pretty well spoken for.
