Year 5

DD#2 is almost ready for Year 5 of Ambleside. I just printed off the book list, and I’ll be pulling books for that, and making a list of what we still need today. Hopefully most of what we don’t have will be available on-line. I’ll need to get her lesson plans written up as well. That will be an interesting trick, since I usually hyper-focus on that task over a weekend. It’s hard to hyper-focus and pump, iykwim.

I just cannot seem to get a grip yet on what I need to do. It has been a delicate balancing act for years to keep us functioning smoothly, but just now I feel like a juggler riding a uni-cycle on the high-wire. For instance: I used to never have to touch laundry after noon. Now, I am doing it at all hours of the night. I know this will pass, but it’s hard to see that in the middle of the chaos. Enough whining :)

The radio is on a local country station, and Wednesday is apparently “classics day”. I’ve heard more Johnny Cash this morning than the past month. I’m loving it. I guess I’m a classic now, too, since I know all the songs. There are plenty worse things to be I suppose.

DD#5 is trying to smile. The faces she makes as she struggles to master this skill are so cute. I could stare at her for hours, I think, did I not hear the siren song of the urgent.

I have no knitting news to report. I haven’t even finished my heel, though I expect to do so today.
