March was a mixed month. I didn’t cross much off my list, yet I felt I moved forward a lot. I am so thankful to God.
We continued with our usual. We added in more basketball practice. We mostly met our savings goal.
I was able to decide what program to put them in next year for school. They will both continue with Classical Conversations (homeschool).
The second grader was selected in the lottery at a good charter school, but we declined. He currently seems to be learning so much at home in his free time about topics from the presentations in his Foundations class. I didn’t want to take that away. I also looked over what they are covering next year (American History) and it looked fun.
I learned some info about transcripts for the high school magnet school applications and that it wasn’t a problem, so I decided to continue homeschooling my 7th grader. He is pretty high up on the waiting list for another charter school’s lottery, but he wants to continue with Classical Conversations, so that’s what we are doing.
I haven’t made summer plans, other than continuing to homeschool through it (except for a small break). The gym will be packed, so it makes sense to do school then. We will either be reviewing or getting ready for the following year. I would like the older one to take the PSAT 8/9 in the fall. I would really like to go the library.
I have been sensing a need to be refreshed. I go along with the flow (which restaurant, which vacation) most times. I have forgotten what I truly enjoy and what will refresh me. So I spent some time on that, and will continue figuring it out.
I am not getting enough done, despite my best efforts, so I have been researching that. I have to decide what needs to be done first that will make the most difference towards reaching my goals. I need to limit my to do list, which is burdening me. I need to set myself up for good habits by planning for resistance.
So I have a lot of reflecting and planning for April. Hopefully that will move me forward.
All this downtime from activity has caused me to move slower. All this necessary reflecting has caused me to turn to God even more. As a result I am able to notice and appreciate my family more. I am so grateful for them. It has truly been a blessing to be able to appreciate them.
How about you? How did you do with March? What are your goals and plans for April.
