Summer is almost over, and the back-to-school pictures of kids with new clothes & backpacks are being posted like crazy on Facebook. The big yellow bus will be rolling through our neighborhood next week for the first time this school year. And even though my boys won't be getting on that bus, it does bring back the long lost routine that I've been missing these past couple of weeks. Our new schedule, which includes school time for Jackson and Carter as well as "Tot School" for Harrison is on the fridge. I've still got to get our other organization tools done next, primarily chore and incentive charts in the works. Starting Monday, it is Back-To-School at "Widhalm Academy" and I'm really looking forward to it! Our new school room isn't quite going to be finished, but we'll make do with what we have until the contractor is back to finish up the basement floor and we can move everything else in and get settled.
The walls are painted and furniture moved it, but that's about it so far.
Still need to get the dry erase board and wall decor hung. The closet
is going to serve as storage for teacher references and a cozy place to read.
The floor is going to be stained shortly. We'll add a few other things after that.
We considered putting the boys in public school this year. After lots of prayer and discussion, we just didn't feel peaceful about going that direction right now. I'm so thankful that as parents we have the freedom to choose what is best for our kids and our families.
