The new year has begun and we have gotten back into the groove of homeschooling. It's getting easier all the time. I trust my intuition more and I've relaxed just enough to make the experience a lot more enjoyable. Yes, I still have my moments when I question my sanity but overall, we are having an wonderful time together.
One of our weekly activities is the homeschool co-op. It's been a godsend. I'm getting to know other moms and I'm feeling less like a fish out of water. I may even admit to you that we're a homeschool family. Before, I've been reluctant to put myself in that category.
So, life is full of activity with our homeschool community. I've agreed to co-teach the handsewing class which suprised me. But, Solomon is in my class and it's like a bunch of ladies sitting around knitting. It's so meditative for them.
Eli ended up in my class too. And although he is technically not old enough, I think he was able to keep up with the rest of the kids. He came home and announced that he was no long a pre-schooler! Wtih two older siblings, life moves at a faster pace for this guy.
When we came home last week, the boys wanted to do some more sewing. It's kind of addictive.
How could I say no? We pulled out the basket of felt and got to work on some birds. This week we are working on some pencil holders, inspired by the books Hand-Stitched Felt by Kata Golda and Rae Grant's book Homemade Fun . This is such a fun time of year to be making puffed hearts or bunnies don't you think?
Are you getting into the groove of this new year? Tell me!
