wrapping up the school year

I have to remember that change is hard for me.  Every spring and fall especially.  I suppose in the spring I'm trying to wrap up school. I'm tired, stressed out and can't wait to sleep in!  There's never a lack of activities I'm involved with, but surely they'll be less going on in just a few short weeks.

I teach a class on Tuesdays, you might say a small cooperative with my two boys and a friend.  Actually, I'm pretty proud of myself for sticking with it and seeing it almost to the end.  We've tackled physical science and history while getting time with friends.  I've learned a lot about myself and about history and science which is a bonus in my book.  But, I decided that I'm going to finish by the end of the month.  I want my Tuesdays back.

On Fridays, we attend another co-op for A's Latin which I have to contribute my time.  On two other days, A spends the day with other teens learning biology, writing and history.

My ceramics class every Wednesday is almost finished.  It's been a challenge on many levels.  But, I love what the kids create and it brings me great joy to watch them as they wrap up their glazed pieces.  The experience has actually pushed me to start my own home based business with ceramics.  More on that another time.

I just have a lot on my plate right now.  Everything is worthwhile and enrich our homeschooling experience, but I'll be so glad when I can finish up some of it.

Meanwhile, I'd like to show you what the kids have been making!

Happy spring to you!! ♥
