What a year, amirite?
I was just about ready to ditch this blog completely because–let’s face it–I’m not posting much. These past 18 months have lead to a lot of new things around here, including a focus on finally working on my own “real” writing (meaning I finished drafts for 5 novels and 95% of a 6th). I can’t promise there will be a lot of upcoming posts, but as my oldest starts 9th grade and my youngest 6th, I figure maybe there will be some middle and high school anecdotes to share with my fairly limited audience here, if you’re still out there.
I consider us so lucky to have been already homeschooling when things shut down here in March of 2020, but life changed for homeschoolers just as it did for everyone else. As we look toward the new school year, it feels like we’re still working out what our “new normal” will be. Things that got lost in the shuffle of our previously daily life have been given time to blossom, both opportunities and challenges.
So, if you’re still reading, I’ll hopefully be posting a bit more as we sort out our plans for the school year (which, as usual, is always going to start “next week” but keeps getting pushed back due to a new fence, holidays, surgery for one of the dogs, and much-delayed field trips). Maybe I’ll even manage to put together a pretty shelf picture, but maybe not. I guess you’ll just have to check back and see.
