I am joining in on the fun with Jo-Lynne and friends at the What I Learned This Week carnival! I'm excited to reflect back on my week to see what I can learn rather than plowing on through to the next week without even looking back. So, the object of this carnival is just to post something about my past week or so that can be serious, silly, long, short, profound - just family friendly. Okay, so here goes...
I learned that 5 weeks off of school is way too long for this mama.
I've mentioned before that we are in year round school. Our particular track happens to have a "track out" right after the Christmas break which means about 5 weeks of no school for my sweet girl.
Oh, she is sweet. Today we went to breakfast to celebrate her last day of track out.
But I do think she is bored now and it is time to go back to school. For both of us.
I loved the time with her home and the later mornings. I have to admit I will miss those.
I just feel like I have been on vacation for 5 weeks since we don't have to be anywhere until after 9:00 on any morning. Thank goodness my son is back in preschool or we really would be in trouble.
I think next year when both kids are in school full time and tracked out for this long that I will need to find something with a little more structure for them like a track out camp.
So, tomorrow we track back in for 9 weeks and now my son is in preschool for 5 mornings a week! I better learn to be good with my time or my next What I Learned post will be something like, "I learned that you can waste a lot of time when the kids are in school."
Here is to being productive!
