It begins

For the past three weeks, I’ve been inundated with back-to-school ads, social media posts on getting ready for school, and a host of emails on curriculum and classes. My response has been, “LALALALALA, I can’t hear you!” I told myself I was going to enjoy my summer and not think about school until August.

Oh, hey there, August! So I guess I have to think about school now.

Last year was . . . we’ll go with unworkable. I seriously overscheduled and overcommitted us, and it was ugly. That will not happen again this year. I’m going to practice saying, “No!” in the mirror until I’m randomly yelling it at strangers in the grocery store. Every “Can you X” or “Will you Y” will be met “I’ll need to get back to you on that.” I will stop; realistically analyze our schedule, our abilities, and our needs; and then give an answer. Unless it’s something like “My head’s on fire! Can you put it out?” I think I’ll probably be okay doing that.

My first step for thinking about the new school year is to decide on our goals. It’s no use planning a journey if you don’t know where you want to end up. In addition to academic goals, we need to set spiritual and character-growth goals. For example, last year we were so caught up in our own stuff–and so overextended with both time and money — that we participated in almost no service activities. That can’t happen again this year. I have no desire to become a person who is only concerned with my own life, nor do I wish to raise my children to be those people.

After we decide on our goals, I’ll need to list our assets. The most important asset anyone has is time. Last year, I found this very helpful little ebook called Tell Your Time (af). Unfortunately, I was so overscheduled that I started hyperventilating when I was working through the book. And from that anxiety attack, I learned to tell my time before it had me in a headlock.

Honestly, once these two steps are completed, the rest will fall into place easily. Despite the fact that I said I wasn’t going to think about school until August, I have been storing information on programs and curriculum as they come my way. The acquiring aspect is pretty easy. After eleven years of homeschooling, there’s not a great deal to purchase, and I have a fairly good idea of what those items are.

But today, I’ll start with our goals and our assets, and the next thing you know, we’ll be storming the castle.
