I can’t believe October is almost done, and I have but a single post on my blog to show for it! We actually don’t do a lot of full out family vacations and/or overnight activities, so when we went away for the week to the beach mid-September, and then a few weeks later, we went to a homeschooling weekend camp trip at the beginning of October, it has thrown me completely off any type of rhythm. This week is the first time I feel a sense of finding my place again.
As indicative of my sidebar, I have two yahoo groups that I moderate that have been in existence for seven years and 1.5 years, respectively, so I feel a commitment to putting in some effort there to catch up and connect with my fellow listmates, some of whom have become great friends IRL! By the time I get around to working with my blog, the desire to write is gone, and I find it difficult to write if I don’t feel like it. So, instead, I have kept up on reading my fellow blogger’s posts and throw in my comments here and there, but otherwise, haven’t carved out the creative time I can devote to posting on my blog.
The last thing that has taken some of my attention away is a person was found to work with William through my state service organizations. Although I wasn’t sure I was ready to train someone, it was apparent she would be a good fit, and I felt I needed to give it a try. After a few days of training, I got the clever idea to have her also work with Adam as well. After a week and a half of training, my heart just isn’t in it to put in the appropriate level of training to get her at a place to know how to interact in a way that works for my children and our family while implementing the goals in a fun way utilizing their unique learning styles. So, I decided to follow my heart and let her know that I’m just not prepared to train her properly and that we need a break from outsider energy.
Now that all of that is decided, this week I’ve been able to find a new rhythm that works for all of us. Give me a couple weeks, and maybe I can share some of what’s happening and how it’s going. I just feel great about getting back into the groove of a chunk of time dedicated to my screen goals, and hopefully that will include a more consistent time back in my blog 🙂
