What We Learned- 4-8 Feb 2013

Valentine Decorations (3)

We learned this week, that I need to cut back on how much I try to cram into the workboxes. We managed to get Monday and most of Tuesday done. We were suppose to do Thursday on Wednesday and Wednesday on Thursday ('cause we were going out to town Wednesday night, getting home Thursday evening), but we sort of hit a crabby wall on Wednesday morning that was 2 people thick so we just said forget it. For the rest of the week.

Oh, I only managed to take one photo. I had Emma playing with volume in the tub, so I took a picture of that. Not gonna put that up here though.

AND, I managed to forget that Friday was Friday until 2:30. That's an hour and 30 minutes after Emma's horse lesson was suppose to start.

I have successfully won the worst mama of the month award.

So, this last week was kinda a bust, but I think it was also a reality check. I need to remember that Emma likes to learn, but on a more relaxed pace. So, over the next week or two we will be reevaluating our approach to learning.

I will let you know what/when we figure out our next plan of attack! If you have suggestions, I would love to hear them.

I am surprised that Emma did not bring up the riding lesson. Maybe that is a hint that you had both been too busy and just needed to chill.

We have been struggling with this, too! I had thought that February would be a time when we would really buckle down before the fun of spring, but it's turned out to be a month when we need to move a lot more slowly, and apparently spend a lot more time playing with blocks and clay. Winter burn-out?

Glad I'm not the only one! For us it's been hand sewing for the past three days, from breakfast till bedtime.
