This is amazing.

I'm dying for my curriculum to get here. Sunday night I wracked my brain trying to think of activities to do with the kids this week that would keep them busy and entertained, and keep me from going completely out of my mind. I mean, a house full of rambunctious kids with nothing to do can be sheer torture. I was up all night on Sunday freaking out.

But Monday morning came, and then Tuesday, and now Wednesday, and I am seriously in LOVE with this homeschooling thing. Ok, so I really haven't started teaching them yet, but who cares? We've spent an average of an hour a day this week working on academics. Everything else has been fun ventures. The train museum and IKEA were a blast, our trip to the snow today was awesome. We drove 45 minutes for 10 minutes worth of snow time. Seriously. We were there for 10 minutes. Just long enough to fill up a cooler with clean snow to bring home. We made snow ice cream, and added some root beer to it for root beer floats.

Tomorrow, my curriculum gets here. I can't wait! I am so ready to dig in and start teaching these kids some stuff.

I really don't know how this happened to me (ok, I know the Lord has everything to do with it). As I've said before, I am NOT a teacher. But experiencing the world through these kids has brought me a whole new appreciation for being involved in their lives.

I am sure I'm going through a honeymoon phase, and in a few weeks I'll be venting and complaining about putting myself in this position.

But for now, I'll enjoy the honeymoon. There may not be warm weather, cool drinks and a sparkling ocean on this honeymoon, but there sure are a heck of a lot of memories being made!

The more you get into the more you will love it. Not to say that there won't be bad days, cause there will be, but the good will far outweigh the bad. ;)
