Bye Summer, Hello Bed Weather (and Informal Homeschooling)

Just like that, summer is done and we’ve already spent the first half of 2018!
Where did time go, seriously?

If you notice, this year, I don’t post on this blog as often as I did 2 years ago.

I have been contemplating and discussing with Dane since last February or March whether or not we should enroll Nate to a school already.


And with a help of a few advice from friends, neighbors and virtual friends, we decided not to send Nate to school this year. Last Monday, we started our informal homeschooling.

I call it informal because I never attended any Homeschooling seminars at all. What I only have is my years of experience as a Sunday School teacher.

So far, we are both loving it. We play pretend that I’m his teacher and he’s my student for 1.5 to 2 hours every day. Since Nate can already read, we are focused on writing because his interest in it is not as big as his interest in reading. Nothing serious, I just want us to bond more through this and have fun while learning.

We do simple activities, paint, color, read bible stories and write.

This also means that I may not be able to write too often on this blog. I’m not abandoning it for good either. I may not be an excellent writer but I really miss writing on my blog if I can’t write for 3 days or more.

Hopefully, I’ll be able to handle this new task as I prepare Nate for next year’s schooling. I am honestly still considering homeschooling him for good but that’s another story – Dane and I still need to talk about that for hours. Also, I see that Nate is interested in going to school and he’s looking forward to doing that next year so we’ll see about that.

I will still be updating this blog from time to time but it may not be as often as I used to. And that’s fine. We all have our priorities and our blogs can wait for us. After all, I created this because I wanted to have an online journal. And up to now, it still served its purpose.

So yeah, see you around (and on my other social media accounts ☺).

For now, let’s enjoy the lovely bed weather! ♥

There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens:
