(That's from a line in one of my favorite movies, That Thing You Do.) :)
The first quarter is already 1/3 of the way over -- wow, this year is already whizzing by!
There is so much I've been meaning to share, especially regarding how I'm approaching curriculum and planning on a daily basis, and how that plays out in our daily routine. I also want to share my initial impressions of the purchased curriculum we're using, and the modifications I'm making to it.
But planning and implementing and recording and prepping is taking a lot more of my time than I expected, and I don't know if it will lessen as I really get clicking here or not. Meanwhile, if I ever hope to get any sleep, something's gotta give -- and so far, it's blogging (believe me, I'd rather write than do laundry, but the towels start to smell if I put them off too long.) :)
So, to make a long story short, I hope to get in more blogging time soon, both here and on my planning site, In My Backyard.
