Maybe this will be my new homeschooling room
In a few days we have an appointment to see another house...5 decent sized bedrooms (I think there are 3 upstairs, one on main floor, one in basement? Four(!) full bathrooms (a good thing with four teenage daughters at the same time, no?), fenced yard, a quiet looking street that even ends in a trail (I think) to a state park/stream. Biggest problem we can see, (without having seen it I mean)? It's horribly overpriced for what it is. *If* we like it, hopefully the sellers will see reason and accept a low offer. Really low. It doesn't look that big either, from the outside. It might be all bedrooms! And a sunroom, I suppose. ;-)
We're still on a break from school, which is good because we seem inundated with doctor and orthodontist visits, house visits, research to try to help my dad deal with my elderly, and now broke, grandmother...
I'm itching to get started again, but at the same time, so NOT READY. I want this to be a creative, beautiful, and healing year for all of us. But I feel like I don't know HOW to make that happen - it feels like a matter of not being able to teach it because I'm not emotionally there myself, YKWIM? I wish I could go back in time and do this curriculum (in a cabin, ALONE, LOL, for at least a year) and learn how to be at peace, and to love, and to do needle felting. ;-)
I need to run and hug my kids, they are almost done with their snack and I've wasted enough time here. Not than any of you dear readers are a waste of my time! But talking to you doesn't get my laundry folded, or the mess that just prompted a big UH OH from my 4yo cleaned up. :-P
