I’ve just about reconciled with the fact that I do have to get back online pretty soon. Notice I say, ABOUT. I’ll get there soon. With the traditional school year starting, I’m going to kick off our homeschooling as well.
Recently I completed therapeutic foster care pre certification training. I’ve spent most days with 8-10 kids in tow (and yes, I do still want more of my own). I’m in a period of limbo while the rest of my certification for fostering gets underway, prayerfully we will add a family member soon!
In case you are curious, we are using My Father’s World curriculum. We are also using teaching textbooks for mathematics and Generations of Virtue for purity training. Ideally, we will be out and about (at least around Oregon) a lot this school year. I’m envisioning a lot of long weekends spent exploring history and all the natural wonders of this great state. I found an amazing blog, Catholic Icing which will provide us with plenty of fun activities to help explore our faith.
I’m definitely open to suggestions for curriculum and homeschool resources! I have joined a local homeschool co-op and have many family friends in the homeschool world… so I’m hoping to ride on their coat tails a bit!
My plan in the blogosphere and my other writing avenues is to be back full force by, oh, mid- September. Time will tell. There have been a lot of life changes this summer which I won’t publicly discuss… but things are smoothing out now.
