Is Summer Really Over?!
Alright, confession time guys.
I'm really not feeling the coming school year thing. Usually by this time of the year I am so psyched that my head is about to explode, and I am chomping at the bit to dive in. But this year...
Truth be told, I haven't even written up my lesson plan yet. For tomorrow.
I did the research. I investigated lessons. Paid the fee to join the co-op. Even ordered our new science text, and a Grow-A-Frog kit (it is totally a thing). But I am just not feeling it.
Moving into middle school feels so much more serious, or at least the pressure is on for it to be. Pardon me while I question authority, and figure out where we stand. I can't help thinking that it is a notable disservice to suck all of the fun out of learning. But I think our approach has always been a little oddball.
I think this weekend will be time to hit the books, sort some things out, and try to get myself ready to roll into this school year with a little more pizazz. I'm really looking forward to having Cynar home for the holiday, and just relaxing and soaking in the end of summer.
I hope everyone has a great last weekend of summer!
