We took the girls swimming on base today. It turned into an exercise on patience. First, we had to pay $12.oo for "open swim" time. We were in the water 2 minutes and they blew their whistle. Evidently only 1/3 of the pool is open. The rest is for people who want to do laps. There was 1 person doing laps. The Genius wanted to swim laps with me. We get to the end and they tell me, "They cannot wear life jackets past the 5 foot section." Um, correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't life jackets for flotation and swimming? Grrrrr. The girls had fun and wore themselves out but there is no way we will buy a pass there.
Today was our "box day". That is name that Sonlight gives for the day you receive your new year curriculum. Ours came today! We had a blast going through it and the girls must have spent an hour looking at the books and stuff. The Hippie is real excited to have her own math this year. We are trying Saxon Math. Here is what I did not expect.... I thought with year one of school under my belt I would be so confident this year. I got the materials and those jitters came back. Do any other home-school parents feel this way or am I alone out here? I AM excited though! The schedule will be harder and more complex but Sonlight made some good changes and it will be a great here! School starts on Monday!
