Planning fool

Yesterday I bragged about having my science curriculum all figured out for our next academic year.  Today I carried on and came up with a (nearly) complete plan for our homeschool for the entire year.   There are some odds and ends missing but it's mostly done.

I can't even believe it.  I've never done so much planning before.  Never ever.

It's really rather exciting.  I might not be flying by the seat of my pants this year.  I could be organized.  I could avoid wasting a lot of time wandering around muttering to myself.

I might have time to leave my kids alone one morning a week to go out and sit in a cafe and drink coffee while I read and/or write.

Wow.  I might even participate in Curriculum Week at the Not Back to School Blog Hop at Heart of the Matter Online.   But not tonight.  I'm kind of tired of typing.   Planning is a lot of work.  But oh, so satisfying, know what I mean?    It'll be even more satisfying if I can pull it all off!

I *do* know how satisfying (and exhausting) it is to plan a school year. Oh, but how I love it!!

I am glad you are having a great time with it! Here is to a successful year! *cheers*

Planning it out is exhausting, but so worthwhile, if you stick to the plans that is (always my problem!)

I'd love to see some of your plans when you're ready!
