I had my last visit with our homeschool facilitator,ever. Danny finishes grade 12 in about a month or less. No more prepping for the new year or lesson plans. It’s a strange place to be. There are lots of big changes and I can’t say that I am too thrilled about them. I’m sure they will work out somewhat, but I like to know what’s happening and the result or else I panic. Needless to say, I’m pretty much always in panic mode.
Danny is job hunting. He has put in so many resumes and changed them even a couple times. I sure hope he finds something soon. The future is so bright for him as an 18 year old. He has his whole life ahead of him and I’m so happy for him that he is entering this time of life. He told the facilitator yesterday that he was feeling a little bitter sweet but yeah, so am I. I guess to me that a sign that what we have done together as a teacher/student duo went well and hopefully he won’t have too many bad memories of this time.
I don’t know what’s next for me or for my future but I guess for now, I will enjoy summer and maybe some ideas will show themselves!
It’s an interesting thing, this Gratitude challenge. It is Day 6 and out of 6, I missed 2. The whole idea of looking for something, in particular, is kind of a hard thing to get used to. After I am done writing this blog I will use my weekly Joy Dare list as the background on my phone; then I will see it and remember. It’s like starting a new habit. I won’t chalk this up to failure yet.
It’s a beautiful Saturday here in Central Alberta. My husband is working today ( and tomorrow). My kids are both sleeping. It’s so normal calling them “my kids” and yet when I do that on social media it makes them sound younger than they are. They are 20 and 17. I don’t plan to wake them up anytime soon ( it’s 10:30). No huge plans today. I might do a load or two of laundry and I need to go into town for a few things. That’s about it. I don’t lead a real exciting life. 🙂
Our landlords should be bringing their cows over soon. We usually get them in Spring until Fall. We love having them around. We are kind of cow nerds ( my husband more than I).
Oh yeah. Yesterday I sent in school registration for the very last time! Grade 12. With all the changes happening to homeschooling in Alberta, I am so thankful we are getting out of it now. It’s way easier to come into these changes rather than being in the system already, set on a certain way of doing things and then all of a sudden having to change. I agree with some of the changes but disagree with others. Luckily, for us, we can do things the same we have all the way through high school.
Well, that’s enough rambling for now. Have a great day friend! Don’t forget how loved and amazing you are. I loves you!
