Obviously I haven’t been around lately. I took a break because I decided to start homeschooling my boys (long story). I have been focusing on creating routine here while keeping it pretty simple. I’m a huge fan of Charlotte Mason method, minimalist philosophy, and the Wild + Free community. Basically I’m learning to let the kids be kids, be outside a lot, having nature walks, and then bringing it in with art appreciation, copywork, dictation, reading, reading aloud, hands-on math, and so much more. It’s a joy to do school with my kids each day.
Because of this, I had to take a step back. In fact, at first I thought that I wouldn’t want to do this course anymore. Fortunately, through being part of the natural living community more (because of the way I homeschool) and just being around lots of babies, I have decided that I want to be part of the process of bringing a baby into the world again. I have more of a desire now, so that will definitely help as I am focusing on my course in addition to homeschooling. I feel that they all work together in fact!
I decided that since I have been stuck in the physiology portion of the course (that I have already completed once in the past and was just re-doing), that I am going to just move on to the next section. I will re-study things as I make that portion of my scope and sequence. That way I am killing two birds with one stone, and I feel like I’m making progress. I will also be reading books to review for my course as well and know that I will learn so much through them!
My amazing trainer reminded me that we work on it a lot when we are feeling it and put it away sometimes. And that’s perfectly normal. She also reminded me that we aren’t going to feel passion 100% of the time. Life has ebbs and flows and passion comes and goes with that.
Over the next week or so I’m going to create a schedule for myself and send it to my trainer so that I have some accountability. I am 2/3 way through my course! This is exciting. I know this last module will probably take the longest, but that’s okay. I want to do a good job!
