We went back to the Y tonight. I hadn’t been on the machines in almost 2 weeks because of my nasty cold, so it was good to resume that. The girls managed to be normal girls throughout much of the day, but when 7:00 hit tonight suddenly their bodies realized they were shortchanged 4 hours the previous night and they became little grizzlies. Bedtime came early tonight. I didn’t handle them well, perhaps because I also got shortchanged on sleep last night?
School was, shall we say, on the light side this week, but I expected that with my parents in town and so many big projects coming due. We’ll make it up in the next weeks, particularly now that the Tuesday morning Bible Study is over and my classwork is wrapping up.

I’m really glad about not taking any seminary classes next year. I really want to give homeschooling my full and undivided attention, especially since Katie will be an official Kindergartener. With Craig’s new role, we found out that the girls can receive 50% off tuition to pretty much any Christian school in town and so I did some research today just for my own benefit. Even with 50% off we can’t afford it. We wouldn’t be able to afford it with 75% off. But still – even if they offered it for free I’m not sure it would be the decision we would make. I just wanted to know all the factors involved.

I emailed the principal of the public school down the street with some questions today, too – want to know everything possible. I’m still convinced we will homeschool come fall, but I feel more comfortable now knowing that Katie can still receive speech services as a homeschooled Kindergartener through the public system if she qualifies again. I’m calling tomorrow to see if I can get her re-evaluated because I’ve been having more and more difficulty understanding her lately and think she may have regressed since being released from her IEP in December.

In the event she doesn’t qualify… does anyone know of any homeschoolers who do speech therapy on their own? It seems there should be a book or something about it somewhere. I asked Carrie today what I would do if I were going to do speech with her on my own. She said I needed some papers with words for her to say, some games to play, stickers for when she does well, and prizes. I think I can handle that. *wink*

Anyway, all that to say that I’ve lost my focus this semester (again) and am looking forward to having “homeschool mommy” be my primary responsibility. Ten more days until that happens.
