I’ve had this series of posts sitting in my queue since January. And very recently I have almost scratched it completely.
1) I’m trying to spend less time blogging, not more
2) We sent our son to preschool and are sending him back in the fall, which even though it’s been a great thing for him and me, is never what I in my idealism wanted
3) I don’t want to guilt anyone who is just letting their kids play until kindergarten and not worrying about education or home education for their 2, 3, or 4 year old. Because we need to let our kids be little and sometimes preschool moms really lose sight of that. (*points finger at herself*)
It’s only the third week of summer and I have SO enjoyed letting Ezra just be a kid and play…and play really hard. We aren’t doing a lot of preschool, and I’m totally okay with that. I used to pour a lot of mental and physical energy into preschool activities, but now I’m just searching for whitespace and improving my skills in the art of underachieving. And I’m just very at peace in this place.
But, as of right now, there’s nothing else in my queue, my head, or my heart to write about; and I feel like this is a topic my readers can benefit from because I’ve had a lot of people ask me questions, so I guess this is what I’m going to do.
I’m going to use this post as a landing page (which you can access at any time from my sidebar). I hope to space the posts out over the course of the summer, especially to help preschool moms gear up for the fall if they want to homeschool their preschoolers. And I’m going to be covering the following topics:
Our favorite preschool apps
The preschool resource you might be overlooking: the Dollar Store!
Miscellaneous preschool activities we enjoy
Teaching preschoolers about God
Our very random, laid-back approach to at-home preschool
This series is for the underachieving moms. This isn’t about being supermom. It does not involve crazy curriculums, hours of lesson plans, or even logging into Pinterest. This stuff is going to be easy. I promise.
