I'm still here

I'm ashamed to see that it has been over a month since I last posted.  Terribly shameful of me.  I should begin by saying, "Merry Christmas" and "Happy New Year".

Instead of chronicling a long list of things that have kept me from writing, I started thinking about what I am doing.

School.

Five children.  Five different learning styles.  Five different levels for math and reading.  Memory work and science experiments.  Geography...phonics.  We just finished our day and the clock reads 3:51!

It seems like we just finished lunch. 

So, the day is mostly gone, and I don't have a plan for dinner.  The guilt of not blogging has pulled me to sit down and write.  The dreary, frigid weather has kept me from running, so I don't have a long list of posts from which to draw ideas.  I desired, mainly, to stop and say, "I'm still here." 

The quiet reading time has ended for the five year old, as he's reading over my shoulder.  I suppose that means my writing time is over too. 

But, I'm still here.

I'm glad you're still here too! I just love to "hear" your voice.
