It’s been a loooong while since I’ve posted! Over a half year. YIKES!!
Things didn’t go so well for us this past school year. We’re still working on things that should have been finished late April/early May! To say I’ve been overwhelmed is an understatement.
I burned plum out somewhere around Christmas and never recovered. It wasn’t one big thing in particular but a collection of many small things…that ran over me like a colony of ants attacking an unfinished apple on a picnic blanket.
I never recovered but I kept plugging away, not trying to play catch up…just trying to not fall farther and farther behind. Fun stuff was neglected. The kindergartener’s schoolwork was neglected. The laundry and housework were neglected. *sigh*
Around January or February, I jokingly told the ladies in our women’s bible study group that I would be happy if we just finished this school year the day before next school year. *sigh* Oh how close that joke is to becoming truth…
On top of that, I’ve stayed on the injured list in one form or another pretty much since the week after I finished my first half marathon. Very little running (which is my stress release).
We did have some fun moments! I promise! It wasn’t all dark and dreary. We had plenty of bright and shiny moments. Co-op classes, games, sports, play dates, field trips.

|a LOT of baseball! Three teams this year!!!|
And a lot of other fun stuff. The school year wasn’t a total bummer.
…..I’m kind of a major slacker though. 😉
