You may or may not know that we had a plan. It was not a bad one. It was doable. But somewhere along the way it disappeared. Where? I do not know. I can't say I'm really disappointed. Actually I don't think I really care, isn't that funny. It was my plan to begin with so maybe I feel I have creative rights to alter or chuck it completely!
Our plan was to school through the summer, and apart from Bradon's odd Math lesson, we haven't at all.
Now that July is over, I'm kinda thinkin' there's no reason to try. We'll just pick it up again in Sept.
I have tried to get us in sync with regular school start and stop times. I've never been really successful at it. We usually just start and stop when we need to. Which means that although my children are learning and growing we may not be in the same "grade" other kids are. 2 of my kids are at least a grade ahead if not 2. And the other 2 are a grade behind, in some areas 2!
I have felt the pressure to "measure" and push my kids or hold them back. More and more though I care less and less. And I hope that I can finally stop thinking about where they are "suppose" to be and just let them "BE".
After all it's not like we not doing anything, well currently we are, but you know what I mean. We are free to move at our own pace and learn things more thoroughly. I think they will benefit far more from that, rather then rushing through to get it done.
Thanks for listening;) I'm just here to ramble at you!
