I’ve loved being able to work from home and raise my children with the opportunity to spend all the time that they want with me.
Truly is 4 years old, and her favorite things to do with her sister and I, is go to a chinese buffet, catch a lunchtime movie, or take a spontaneous trip to the museum or zoo.
This will all soon end, when my little Trulybear goes off to kindergarden next year, leaving me and her little sister Addy to have all the fun without her. She’ll soon be gone 5 days a week, 7 hours a day, for pretty much the rest of her life. Anyone else think school is waaay too long???
Of course, I have options to home school her and join home schooling groups in our town, and also am checking out some private schools who have shorter classroom hours, but either way, her going off to school is a sad, yet growing part of life.
Truly is super excited about leaving me and venturing off into the world with her Barbie back pack in tow. She can’t wait to have friends, have a teacher, and *gasp* do homework.
I’m so glad that she is excited and take pride in my fearless child.
Me on the other hand, not so much.
So as a way to accept the unavoidable future, I’ve decided to create a #BeforeSchool challenge!
Everyday until she goes to school, we are going to spend doing something fun, of her choice. This involves riding the train at the zoo, going to the movies, having a picnic, and even simple things like making our own play dough, baking cookies, or checking out a book at the library.
Everyday, I’ll write a blog post, or post a picture of our #BeforeSchool challenge activity!
