Adding Poetry to our Day
If you enjoy my post, be sure to check out how we use Wayfarers, a history + EVERYTHING curriculum from the same publisher!
Forest, my one year old, didn’t fall asleep until 8:30 last night, leaving me absolutely no time to get to my homeschool meeting which ended at 9:00. Well, I still went, of course. I mean, what homeschooling mother turns down the chance to leave the house, interact with grown ups, and clear off the snack table?!
I miss the days when I could take Forest with me at night, but sadly he’s too old now to drag to meetings and knitting circles and coffee dates and all the other evening activities that I require in order to keep my sanity in tact. When he was younger Forest would just sleep wherever we went, but now he’s too distracted by the noise and the people and the food and the ever-present yarn. This isn’t fair to him, because he needs his sleep. This isn’t fair to anyone else either, because it’s hard to focus on the topic of the night when a one year old is flashing some serious dimple love at you. Well, it’s hard for me to focus, at least. I just assume that everyone else is as smitten as I am.
Anyway, I was a bit bummed to miss last night’s meeting because it was the night that every brings in their favourite curriculum and shares why it’s the greatest thing since the invention of the denim jumper. And this year I have the best curriculum and I was so excited to share it with the group!
Yeah, I’m pouting.
Well, I’ve decided that a little thing like “physical absence” can’t stop me from sharing my picks, right? I’ve got a blog and zero motivation to do housework this afternoon.
Oh yeah. It’s time for a review…
