the long and winding road…

It is now October… where did this year go ?! I feel as though we are in the Enterprise, racing at warp-speed toward distant unknowns… Beam me up, Scotty, I am not ready for this… Dammit Jim, I am a teacher, not an astrophysicist ! Must take a deep breath, focus, and realize we have plenty of time left in the year to accomplish our goals. Must get The Profesor to kill the bug on the bedroom curtains… but I digress. =)

The changing of the seasons come with unique challenges, which tend to change each year as WE change… notice a key term here.. CHANGE ?! The Historian is getting older, more focused and more sure of her plans for the future. She is capable, organized and hard-working, which; when combined with her intellect, is a strong indicator of her chance of success, in high school as well as college. I realize I have nothing to fear, per se, but do have a lot of planning, record-keeping and hard work ahead of me to help her achieve her goals. She is my inspiration, she is doing her best to make her dreams come true, and it makes me work all the harder for her, and with her. Her education is a full time job, and one I am enjoying immensely !

That being said, I am feeling a bit of a time crunch on my own goals. I am going back to college full time when she graduates, but until then, I have decisions to make. I am leaning toward taking intensive summer classes, to bang out some requirements ahead of time, and shave a few years off the process. I do not know how I am going to swing this, and hope with careful planning and familial support, I will be able to make it happen. We are approaching a season of great importance for my foxling, and I do not want to be inaccessible to her now. =) Ah, the joys of juggling motherhood, home education and life !

Have a wonderful day, take time to breath deeply of that cooling, autumnal air and enjoy the fruits of your labors. This is a time of bounty, of harvest and reaping what we have sown. Our years in the orchard are beginning to bear fruit, and it is a heady feeling, all this possibility…
