Time to Prepare for the Next School Year

School just ended and it's already time to begin preparing for the next one. Some of it has already begun.

That short kid does not get a full break. We work on skills year round. This summer since her attention span has increased, and she is better able to follow directions we are splitting the time. 

We have worksheets, focusing on her weakest areas so that they are in her mind all year long. I print them off the Internet. When I buy them I copy the pages for repeated use. The repetition aids in her learning. 

Recently while searching for a portable washing machine, I found that an inexpensive tablet is about the same price. It takes priority as she can use it to learn. My connection to the Internet is being altered to go truly wireless so that she can use it with her online learning sites. It is going to be a surprise for her. I have some Clifford books picked out for her birthday that I hope to have shipped at the same time.

I will be using table time, outside time and trips around town through the summer to keep her on her toes.

Well, it's time to go so I'll see you all later. Meantime rest well. How soon do you prepare for the next school year?

I can remember that I used to get excited about the holidays but that was a long time ago. I was a kid and family still enjoyed a home cooked meal made mostly from scratch. The thought of going out to eat or buying frozen dumplings never crossed anyone's mind. I miss those days more than anyone could ever imagine.

Now I prefer to spend the holidays alone with the daughter that I have with me. I'd love to spend it with both of them but that's not always possible. This year I'm taking my youngest to my mother's and hubby is going with his parents to their family. Someone is cooking, I have no idea who. All I know is that they're huggy people and I'm not.

Well, I'll be going now, I have nothing else to ramble about.

Working it out

I was attempting to figure out yet another crisis when I determined the entire thing was basically in my head. The idea of being able to work from home again was one I had all but given up on until I determined that it was and is the only way to ensure that I achieve everything I need to achieve in a given day. I found help to renter this world from a friend.

Saturday Evening Post

I was reading through this blog and noticed that there were somethings that I'd forgotten. It's amazing how time changes things without your even noticing at times.
