Yesterday's project of washing all the windows didn't take as long as I had expected so I found myself with an afternoon that didn't have a project assigned to it! I looked around at what would be the best use of my time and as my gaze was scanning past my computer screen I saw it...that huge mountain of schoolwork from this past school year.
"It needs to be done", I told myself, so why wait? I worked hard the rest of the day and was able to complete the daunting task of organizing everyone's work, calculating necessary grades and updating transcripts.
While in the process of doing that, I found myself thinking about the next school year. Every summer that seems to happen. I am so glad to be done and on break when I find my mind wandering to next year, what we can do and the exciting topics we might cover. I pick up those catalogs and start daydreaming about what I might buy.
But summer just started...the months I have longed for since about February...why oh why is my brain venturing down this path already?? Alas, I will indulge my brain and daydream on and off over the next busy month about what our next school year will look like and hope that by the time it does start I will still be excited about it :)
Have a good second day of summer...whatever that means for you and your family!
