I decided on a different format for my weekly wrap up this week.
Pardon me while I wipe away the virtual dust that’s been collecting here. Its been a while but we are in the thick of it here. Its what I refer to as crunch time. All business no fluff. Without fail this time of year comes around and I start to panic. Why am I panicking? Well, the year is wrapping up and I’m never sure if we will get it all done. I’ve counted the lessons and the remaining days and its doable but this year will be really tight. Honestly, I’m not sure where the time went. But it seems that this year passed within the blink of an eye.
Here are a few pictures of what we’ve been up to:
In just under six weeks it will be time for standardized testing. “Dah, dah, dah, dah”. Each year I mumble under my breath about how I wish we could just skip over this part. Yes I said skip it. I know testing is a necessary evil but, you can’t imagine the amount of stress I endure the weeks leading up to the exams and waiting for the results. In our home testing is a must so I have to deal with my anxiety and keep it moving.
Two days after exams, my sister in law will get married. We’ve been planning this wedding for a year and I will be happy to be on the other side of it. Don’t get me wrong weddings can be a happy time for all involved but I get nervous, when there are too many things on my plate. Several times a year I find my schedule tight with deadlines all of which are very important for one reason or another. At this moment, I’m already beyond the wedding, anticipating quiet time, when things are back to normal, even if only for a brief moment.
