Being the Primary president of our ward has really been one of the most time consuming things I have on my plate right now. There is endless meetings! I have 150 active kids each week and about 30 teachers... oh wait... I forgot nursery... make that about 36 teachers. Plus cub scouts and activity days to make sure are staffed and happening and at the moment we also have the primary program, but that is next Sunday so I can strike that off our list of projects to get done. I know I have help getting all this done, 2 councilors and 2 secretaries, but I get consulted on almost everything and am expected to know everything that is going on everywhere. My kids seem to think I am either constantly on the phone or headed to another meeting.
Oh and I am homeschooling too. This is really where my focus should be and usually is. Our whole family life revolves around learning. Learning about the Civil War, Latin Grammer, Physics and what ever else comes up.
Molly has math, reading, and piano everyday. It is my goal to also read her at least three picture books as well. This doesn't happen nearly often enough. Poor girl!
Sophie is doing her Williamsburg and I am really taking a minimal role in making sure she gets her work done. I do occationally help her with an assignment and sometimes have to remind her to get back on task when I find her lollygagging but mostly she is on her own and seems to be doing pretty well staying on top of her assignments each week.
Ian is taking some online classes as well and that is keeping him busy. I consider these classes as a warm up to him joining the Willimsburg Intermediate classes next year. He seems excited! I do have to prod him along to get his work done but so far so good.
Henry decided to take an online art class and he loves that. I don't know if he just loves the fact that he has a class or if he really likes art but he is happy and the boys love the class. It is Henry's class but Ian always sits in and listens.
So even with our busy lives we do find some time to enjoy life. I just wish there was a bit more leasure time. I work really hard to squeeze in reading time. Novels of course. It is what keeps me sain. Those precious moments where I get to jump into another time and place are something I can't live without.
I really shouldn't complain. It is a good life full of good things. I just don't have as much time, inclination or desire to post much here on the blog. I don't even take many pictures anymore.
