In the Bleak Midwinter of Homeschooling

February begins tomorrow, which is when the thoughts of homeschooling mothers turn towards anything besides the curriculum they are so extremely tired of implementing. Usually I translate this into a need to start figuring out my plans for the next year.

This time that planning takes on extra significance because the oldest is in eighth grade. As we all know that means high school comes next. High school means real planning and preparation, because those four years are what prepare you for college. Ack! So I have to really map out my son's plan for the next four years to make sure he'll have what needs to graduate in a timely fashion. My first inclination has been to register with a school like Kolbe Academy but now I'm waffling about that.

Next year, I will also have a kindergartner, first grader, fourth grader, and sixth grader. I actually need to plan now, or I'll never be ready.

And I really am tired of everything we are doing right now. I think I need to find something to inspire and refocus us during Lent. More planning!

Back to work.

You said absolutely everything I've been thinking! Perhaps I only make it through Feb by thinking of August! Looking forward to seeing if our high schoolers plans are similar. :)
