I’m up early this morning before the girls. It feels very back-to-schoolish of me. But really, it is out of necessity. I don’t really feel ready to start our homeschooling year this morning. But at the same time, with all the time in the world, would I ever feel completely ready? I felt the same way when I was a third grade teacher. Never quite ready.
But if I can just suck down this cup of coffee and get a five minute head start on the day, I think I’ll feel pretty good.
I hear voices upstairs….thankfully, my children enjoy a lounge in bed most mornings before emerging.
Dan and I spent the day yesterday dealing with the monster in the corner that is my homeschooling/art cupboard–which had quickly become my, “I don’t know where this goes, shove it in the blue cupboard”-cupboard. It is wonderful to have space this year to spread out all my stuff. Last year it was a constant struggle–toting around my “boat and tote” of books, figuring out how to stow away 500 counting bears….
But this cupboard is way more prepared than I am. But looking at it, could almost convince me that I’m ready. Almost.
And in honor of going back to school, how about a little Atom Collider Rap to start your morning? It’s good to know you can be this smart, and still a pretty decent rapper. When she gets into the whole “three dimensions that we live in” thing at the end, my brain starts to thump in my head. Apparently, when this Large Hadron Collider goes into operation on September 10, the things it uncovers will “rock you in the head.”
And last but not least, Emma has a little news she’d like to share with you:
His name is Sunshine. His name is Sunshine. His name is Sunshine. Did you get that? Oh, and it’s 2008. Come 2015, I’ll be really glad she let me know that.
I hear voices…..Happy Tuesday, everyone!
