I always have good intentions of keeping up with my blog. I LOVE writing. My dream career is to be a sports journalist. I loved English classes in high school and college. A nerd, I know. But I truly love it. So I should want to keep up with my blog. And I do. But life so often gets in the way. I guess the main part is that I am still trying to adjust everything to having 3 children now. And I think it wouldn’t have been quite so hard if there weren’t 8 years age difference between my baby and my now middle child.
It’s literally like starting over. I have forgotten a LOT! So I am trying to adjust. As a family we are trying to adjust. And we aren’t just trying to adjust to having a baby and a new family member, but we are still trying to adjust our homeschool schedule, keeping up with the house, and I also went back to school this semester. In hindsight, I probably could have put that off for awhile, but I have been going off and on for a lot of years now trying to finish. I decided I just had to bite the bullet and get it done.
I don’t know if I had mentioned in a previous post that Jayson is now attending a two day a week school for homeschoolers for this school year. He is struggling though. Math is definitely an issue for him. He is just not a workbook kind of kid, and that is the math they do there. Math is definitely a weak point for me, so we will be getting him a tutor so he can catch up and, hopefully, stay caught up.
Both boys are in occupational therapy again. I will be posting some things later about some awesome ideas their OT gave me to do with them at home to incorporate their school work in. More than just sensory breaks. Also, I am busily putting together ideas and bookmarking sites for busy bags and sensory bins. Baby J is already 8 months old! So I know next year will be even crazier with him more mobile than he is now, so homeschooling will get a little more complicated. So I am trying to plan now for things he can do to be kept busy at certain times. I will be posting about these as I come across them and as I get them completed.
I also have a few other things in the works that I will post about as I feel ready. I have a blog planner that I am working on getting into order this week. After I do so, I will be posting a review on it and then sticking to it so I can be on here more regularly and on my FB page. I truly do love writing and I truly need this blog as an outlet, so I am very much wanting to do something with this. And if I happen to help out one person along the way, that would be an awesome bonus!
