Finished the school year!

But we’ll continue learning and exploring throughout the summer, just not as formal as the past two months.

I enrolled my daughter in Agora this year and while I really like their curriculum, it just didn’t work out for us. I share custody of my child and it was too hard on her and on myself to try to do an entire curriculum just when I had her, so I’ll go back to independently homeschooling her for next year. It wasn’t impossible – if I wanted every single day I had her to be school day with no time for us to do anything else.

I love homeschooling my daughter, but it seems like there’s very little time for me to do much else these days. Not sure how I’m going to keep handling this, but I need to find a way to attend to my writing and music projects. I get so many ideas and I have so many things that I should be working on, but my daughter is my priority, and I have to see to her first.

I sang at Unity Palmyra this past Sunday, which was wonderful! First time I’ve been there this year I believe. And this Thursday I sing at the State of the County. Lori Mitrick, President York County Commissioner, asked if I’d sing the National Anthem. I’ve never sung that song as a solo before. I’m really honored.

I need to find more time to do these kinds of things. They are a part of my life, but then my little girl is the largest part. I’ve learned poignantly how fast these years go by with my first two. My little girl still wants to be with me and really cherishes my company, my thoughts and ideas. I will be here.
