So the home school conference was this weekend and I had a great time THERE the rest of it not so much. Baby Waffle was not so happy in the strange surroundings of the hotel and was up all night screaming so we cut our trip short and came home after the second day of workshops. I don't feel like I missed much though so it is ok.
The book fair was amazing but SO overwhelming. I do feel like I came away with a better understanding of curriculum though which was my biggest concern going into things. I now know what we will be doing for history, reading, handwriting and science in the fall. Really all I have left to figure out is math but I have time so that isn't really stressing me at the moment. I was very taken in by the lap book idea and purchased a couple to try out and see how Little Waffle does with them. She was really fascinated with the one at the booth and since she really loves artsy things I think she will really enjoy that style of learning. We have one on seashells that I thought we would work on over the summer and maybe combine it with some beach trips to try to find the types of shells she learns about in the lap book. (any excuse to go to the beach. Baby waffle is almost a year and has never been to the ocean, totally unacceptable!)
I was born here with NO military connection, it is really hard but I guess I have whined enough, I know there is no fighting it, it is the curse of being in a military town.
I guess I will go to bed and just hope Little Waffle can get a little time with her BFF before they go.
