We’ve been getting ready for the school year around here! It means so many things to our family this year.
Superman is going back to college this year to help shape the direction of his career, so he has had to crack the books for the first time in several years! He’s technically been in school for 2 weeks now and he’s having to re-learn how to study.
For me it has meant the start of my studio’s school year. My schedule doubles through the school year, and along with the bigger schedule comes more paperwork. I do all of our billling, ordering and paperork right now, so that adds a few hours to my week! There will be a lot of music going on over here starting Tuesday.
For Big Kid it means starting “school”. I have 4 siblings who are still in college so he sees his aunts and uncles (and now daddy too!) doing homework all the time and he wanted some of his own. So I’ve added some papers to the units we’re doing and since we’ve enjoyed the little bit of lapbooking we’ve done in the last few months, I’ve got plans to do a little more. Big Kid *loves* scissors and glue, so there is quite a big of art going on over here too! It’s nice to be able to give him a stack of construction paper, scissors and a glue stick and tell him to make whatever he can think up. I taught him how to make a collage a few weeks back and he’s starting to go from just randomly sticking pieces anywhere to having a bit more shape and direction.
Little Bit doesn’t have anything special going on just yet, but soon he’ll graduate out of Baby Storytime at the Library and go on to Toddler Laptime. That will be a big day for me. I can’t believe I have to call him a toddler already. Didn’t I give birth to him just a few weeks ago???
I’ll be back to regular posting soon. There have been many unexpected changes to the studio this year and adjusting to Superman being in school 2 nights a week after working his regular hours has been tough.
