School Planning

Okay, is it me or does anyone else feel the stress of planning for the upcoming year overwhelming? With my dad going into the hospital I feel rushed to complete lesson planning. In the past I always seem to never quite have all the planning done when the new year starts. Of course, a failure to plan is a plan that fails. I always wind up staying up late night Saturday or Sunday trying to prepare for the upcoming weeks work.

I made a promise to myself this year that all of the lesson planning would be done over the summer! Guess what? It's not done and my summer is about to end a little short. I have just under 2 weeks to finish planning for 4 kiddies. My rising Pre-K'er doesn't really require planning but I did want to get a library, subject, alphabet and number schedule together.

Any suggestions?

Busy Life

Well it's been a while since I blogged. My life has been unusually hectic. The kids are out of school for now. I needed to take a moment to prepare myself for the next big event. My dad has prostate cancer and will be going in for surgery in just a few weeks. I am so nervous about the outcome that I can't even concentrate on lesson planning for the upcoming year.

To add to the craziness DH got hurt at work and is on bed rest with a possible herniated disc and then I had someone ask me to take on two more kids for the summer. Huh! I wish someone would take just one of mine for a moment so I can think! Don't get me wrong I love my kids I just feel like my cup runneth over right now.
