Soooo, school is starting soon. Most parents are over the moon excited to send their kids to school and get back on a routine. If you homeschool, this means your summer vacation is over too! However, that being said, I'm excited for school to start as well. We need routine for this family of 6 to not lose their sanity completely. Mind you, I said completely. Every mom and dad has lost at least a portion of their sanity. It's a happy time though.
So this school year we are heading back to K12 (OHVA for Ohio peeps) and I don't think I could be more relieved. This year I'm introducing the last two of my clan into the routine of schooling. Please send wine and chocolate! I have no idea how crazy this is going to be, but I'm ready! (Insert annoying Spongebob song here)
I will have a 6th grader, 4th grader, Kindergartener and a Pre-K kid this year. I need that k12 support to help me get used to having all 4 girls in school. That voice constantly reminding me that I can't skip this day because it's too hard and that attendance that pushes me to do it!
Not to mention, my older girls used k12 when we started our homeschooling journey (haters, please stop here and leave, If you have an issue with me using e-school and calling it homeschooling, go away with your negativity. I am schooling at home....homeschooling) . They got an amazing start and made it easier when we transitioned to traditional homeschooling. So I wanted that start for my younger two as well.
Anywho, now that there will be 4 kids in school and 2 of them requiring non-stop support from me....time is going to be tight! I work from home as an essential oil educator, a sports photographer through the summer, AND I will be homeschooling 4 kids. Sorry about the broken record, I guess I'm just trying to come to terms that my babies are all old enough to be in school. Talk about a wake up call. Time goes SOOO fast and even though we are told that....it is still shocking when we see it...amiright?
So what are you doing to get ready for another year (or your first year) of school? I want to hear from Public School moms, E-Schooling moms, Traditional Homeschooling moms, Unschooling moms, and any other moms out there!
Are you celebrating? Crying? Stressed?
If you are homeschooling (any form) what does your room look like? Post it up on FB with #Igotthis so we can see different ways!!
Also, my oily people....what oils are a must in your school rooms?
For us it's Geneyus, Motivation and Surrender!
Until next time my friends....
