It's July, and you know what that means: we start back to school next month!! I simply cannot believe that this will be Austin's Senior year of high school - it doesn't even seem possible! Riley will be a Sophomore and Reece will be smack-dab in the middle of middle school (7th grade, which I remember SO well).
Our local schools will be starting the first full week of August, on a Tuesday, so we will start the following day.
Usually by this time of the summer, I have decided upon our curriculum for the new school year - and changed my mind a hundred times. LOL
This summer, however, I am driving my daughter to work, and driving her to her new dance studio far, far away. And dealing with a pubescent autistic daughter. And helping the adult with autism manage his new job (which has gone wonderfully, but at the same time has been a huge learning curve for all of us). Oh, yeah, and I'm training for a Half Ironman triathlon at the end of September!! :D
Last week during one of the times I sat and waited for my dancing queen to finish her class, I pretty much solidified our plans for the year. So that is good news. Now I have to make it "official" by putting it in a spreadsheet and making a shopping list. This should be simple, shouldn't it? So why am I struggling so much to get it done. Is it a mental block? Is it denial? I just don't know.
I do know that August and September will be lighter months for us academically because I'll be in the peak of my training, and we'll be getting used to the schedule for the new studio as well as getting the little one to her own studio, and Austin will be adjusting to working and doing his lessons and I'll be having to figure out how to make it all fit in!! And Riley will have outside classes again this year!
Maybe this is why I'm having trouble? I might just be a tiny bit overwhelmed. :)
