Overcommitted

Before I started officially homeschooling, I was a stay-at-home mom for nearly 2 years, worked for a bit, and came back home. In that time, I had done some school "stuff." We went to the zoo regularly. We went on a couple of preschool field trips organized by local homeschoolers. But I never committed to much. We weren't in any classes. We didn't go to many activities. We spent many days learning at home, in the backyard, or at the local park.

Fast forward to now. I have booked 3 days this week with 2 activities...one in the morning and one in the afternoon. What was I thinking! It is Tuesday and we are already tired and neglecting the things that we should be doing, like our daily walk. They are good activities, but it is so easy to become overextended. I am going to have to take a serious look at our calendar and make sure this week doesn't happen again! The good thing is that so far, everything we have done Kiddo has enjoyed and has asked if we can do it again.
