About Me

I'm a mom, a teacher, a student, a wife, and a scout leader. I am actually an education major currently working on my practicum in a 2nd grade classroom. I also home school my two children. I'm also a cub scout leader, a girl scout leader, and at church I'm the children's music leader. ;) I tend to stay a little busy. My state requires homeschoolers to keep a portfolio. I am going to use this blog as my portfolio.

What am I?

another good reason to homeschool

Okay, I have lots of reasons to homeschool --- the one on one, no busy work, more hands on, flexibility, spending more time with my kids are just a few of the reasons. However, this week I have learned a new reason. Sleep!! Apparently, getting up early and then go, go, go all day is too much for my 5 year old. This past week he went to day camp which lasted from 7:30am - 5:30pm. It was TaeKwonDo Day Camp so there was quite a bit more physical activity than there would be at school but every evening he came home grumpy and he's normally not grumpy. So, he did this every evening and fell asleep around 7pm. In the mornings I tried to wake him up and he groaned at me and rolled over. I couldn't get him to eat because he was so tired. In the van, I always handed him his breakfast and he just held it with a dazed expression and never ate it. The poor guys was so tired. I was just grateful it was only a week.

So, today is Saturday. He slept until 7:30am and woke up my normal, cheerful boy. YAY!! Well, until about 4pm and the grumpy little boy returned. So, now it isn't even 6pm yet and he's been asleep since 5pm. haha!! I can't wait until he finally catches up on his sleep so my happy boy will be back.

What has this week taught me? It has taught me that my son isn't ready to spend all day in a classroom if I want him happy when he gets home. LOL!
