What We're Up to This Week

VBS is this week! While I always dread the long, late evenings I love how much the kids come away with when it's all said and done.

I woke up this morning ready to start our first day of school and thought,

AM I CRAZY?

Why on earth would I start VBS and school in the same week? As if one change is not enough for my little ones... I think I got ahead of myself because I also had it worked out in my mind that we would stop nap time for Xander and Milan today as well.

This would all add up to a recipe for disaster. Maybe *I* need a nap?

OH, and please check back tomorrow...I have a giveaway! (Which won't require me rearranging the planets and throwing my kids into major meltdowns...)

Yeah, seems like your brain wasn't really 'thinking' clearly when you started planning. But, alas, we've all been there. The good side is that you realized your over-zealous planning BEFORE actually trying to enact it :) Have a fun VBS week - we've had 3 of them so far (1 was our church, the other 2 at other churches with friends) and are so much better for them!

I just had to giggle when I read this post because I can so relate.
I think we just get a bit excited to get going with things. It is a good thing you are willing to change your plans. I know that there have been those times when I had a plan that I was unwilling to change and it ended with some tears from my children and me. Uggh, not the kind of homeschool I want around here.

Thanks for being so honest, hope VBS is fruitful.

I was starting to worry about you. You didn't post for a couple days and they had bad storms out your way I think. I was hoping you all were OK. Glad to see you posting.

You should take a nap! ;) Good luck with school and VBS! You'll be fine.
