Here we go, here we go, here we GO! Hey guys. Yesterday we spent most of the day getting the bedroom down the hall from my bedroom into our home school classroom. The other half of the day was unpacking our boxes from Amazon of school stuff for the classroom. This is going to be hard. 1st grade is not necessarily hard, but the hours per day commitment for my kids will be a real challenge. Making them sit there as Sarah and I try to figure all of this out is the problem. She wants to teach nursing in college, that has been her goal for years, this is her preview. If she can survive 4 weeks (Maybe more?) with them she may skate by with college kids someday. We have all of the things we need downloaded to start the first week of school. We both looked it over and she is coming up with a schedule. I’m going over things with my girlfriend, Kate, today. She’s a teacher. We will tighten up what Sarah’s plans are. I may need to just hand over my phone and say work it out girls, we want the best for all of this. I don’t know yet.
I have more boxes coming in today. It’s what every thought we needed to homeschool. I’m looking forward to getting this room done. It’s been a lot of talking. I don’t understand why it’s a huge deal, it’s just a classroom. I thought a table and a few chairs was good enough. Boy, was I wrong. We are all working hard to make it perfect. I know the kids will destroy the room by October Lol I hope this works out. I really don’t know what the best thing to do for all of this. I do feel much better the kids have to stay home the first 4 weeks. This may be what we do the entire half of this school year. I don’t know yet.
Kate is also getting info about the start of her school year. It’s a lot of school talk right now. It’s really fun. She knows everything Lol I know nothing. Not surprised. She’s been such a huge help the past 2 weeks figuring out what is the best thing to do.
I’m going to start my exercise routine up again. I’ve had a few ridiculous health issues so I haven’t been able to work out like I want to. I’ve been swimming and…. well mostly swimming. I walk back and forth all over the place so I do count that too. We have been trying to teach the boys baseball but they don’t have the passion for it that I thought they might. I think they are in it for hitting the ball Lol I don’t think they care about rules of the game or anything else. I have not gained pandemic pounds. Because of the nature of my illness I actually lost a lot of weight and have been slowly putting it back on. Thank you Youtube/WebMD/ and various google searches that did nothing to help me figure out what was going on. I went into the clinic and they figured it all out within 15 minutes Lol I’m an idiot. I’m glad the antibiotics have kicked in and I feel MUCH better. Finally.
How are you guys doing? Any back to school stuff going on for you? I love reading your comments. I have finally answered back all of the comments/emails/DM’s I have received. Check your inbox. I even checked my spam folder to make sure nothing went in there. Nothing from you guys did, just some random buy this health candle ad that smells like the pine forest. No thanks. Better than whatever Gwyneth Paltrow is selling Lol Yes I had to google her name to know how to spell it. I got it wrong the first try.
We are all doing well. We are surviving the global pandemic. I am happy Biden/Harris presidential campaign has started. I’m happy she is our VP pick. I am not a Democrat but at this point I would vote for a bedroom lamp before I voted for Don and his ghostly buddy. No way!
Have a great week guys. I am blogging more often. My blogging club friends encouraged us all to write things out. Write it don’t fight it, that’s their club mantra. They think it’s healthy for our mental health. They are probably write (See what I did there).
