We recently took a mini-field trip to an alpaca farm. Prior to going, we spent some time researching and learning about the animals. One of the things we learned is that they make a humming sound. I couldn't quite catch it on video (Micah would not stop talking), but they really do hum. As we were listening to the teaching portion of the field trip, they stood behind us and hummed.
Strange. And a little annoying.
I have a twelve-year-old that constantly hums. Drives me nuts. I wonder if she even noticed that the alpacas were humming?
It is in sight. The end-of-the-official-homeschool-year-finish-line. As much as I love homeschooling, I love finishing for the summer just as much. I know a lot of moms that "school year 'round". I am not one of those moms. I need my time to just be the mom and not be tied down to a schedule. It is refreshing for me and the kids!
That is not to say that the kids don't learn over the summer. I am certain that most days will include obscene amounts of coloring and reading. They (especially Glory) never tire of cutting, taping, stapling and gluing. We also throw in occasional math drills and keyboarding practice to keep things fresh. (Helps to avoid the lengthy review process when the fall school year begins again.)
Most of the subjects are done for the year already. Just have a little of this-and-that to complete. So, if I can just...hold...on...for...a...few...more...days. Then I can start getting ready for the next school year!
First, and foremost, I am a believer in Jesus Christ and am totally in love with God. Next I am a wife to Aaron and a mom and homeschool teacher to 6 great kids. My days are crazy, hectic, loud, wild, fun, exciting, annoying, entertaining, and irritating. But through it all I am so very blessed!
