Where have I been?

Friday, November 26, 2010

As most of you know, Dude started Charter School in mid-September, meaning he is mostly homeschooled using public school curriculum. And, as most of you know, Dude has ADHD. So, this has been a challenging time for us as we adjust and adapt to being together ALL the time and as we find a balance learning coach/student roles.

I needed to be away to make that happen. I just simply could not balance both as I often felt wiped out and/or frustrated.

Hopefully now, we've struck a balance, and I'm feeling less exhausted with my efforts to educate my son. So, hopefully I'll be around again!

How are all of you? What have you been up to?

    Sorry I missed this when you first wrote it. I've been around, but between dealing with team business, work, and getting my exercise, it hasn't left me much time for Spark socializing. Winter break starts at 1:50 on Wednesday, and I'm SOOOOOOO looking forward to it.

    So how IS he doing? That home-schooling aspect must be a real challenge.

    Hugs to you and Dude,
