But I must tell you all why I am having trouble blogging lately. I'm more of a working Mom than I realized I was going to be! I mean, I realize I'm only teaching one hour and a half class per day. But because I'm writing the curriculum and teaching a subject I never have before, I'm spending hours and hours every day on these two every other day block classes.
My day looks something like this:
7:30- Get kids to school, slather with sunscreen and bug spray, walk to class.
8:00- Go jogging (3 times a week).
8:30- Clean up and change.
8:40 to 9:30- Print worksheets and make photocopies in teacher lounge. Grade papers and plan in library.
9:30 to 11:30- Set up for class, enter grades in computer, teach.
11:30 to 12:30- Grade and prepare for tomorrow's class. Pick up Abigail at 12:30.
Nighttime- Make worksheets, review lesson for next day.
It's insane. I'm probably spending 6 or more hours a day a lot of the time on teaching. And soon I'll run out of the material I planned over the summer! Then I'll really be scrambling. I think I'll have to come to terms with the fact that I'm not going to be too great of a mom this year. Don't have too much play in me. Hopefully I will get more efficient (I'll just grow a new personality . . .)!
