I am beginning this post, wanting to write, but really unsure of what to write. It’s been a while since I sat at my laptop to write. Up until recently, I was only ever sitting on my laptop to work. So, it kind of took the fun out of writing. Not to mention, I just didn’t have time.
I’m a special needs teacher. Remote learning was very difficult for families. I found myself trying to teach virtually and helping my own children with their virtual school. What made this most difficult was being a student myself (I went back to school to complete coursework for obtaining certification as a BCaBA). I took and passed my last two finals June 16.
I enjoyed approaching school with my kids as a family. We worked hard and we ate very well. I didn’t miss driving to work and getting up at the buttcrack of dawn. I still had to get up early for work, but I was still able to get nearly 3 extra hours of sleep.
I missed my kids from school though. I missed cooking with them. I missed working on their goals face-to-face.
We don’t have any details yet, but I would love to go back to normal. Honestly, I’m not accepting this new normal. I want true normal because that’s effective.
I still study and research for ABA (I still have to sit for the certification exam and I’m kind of a nerd). I’m starting to get back into my herbal studies. I’m starting my advanced herbal class and I really need to get back into the habit of at least pulling a daily card from my tarot deck. I’ve neglected my deck.
And I need to get back into writing for this page again.
This year, we have worked on the land and continued to expand our homestead. I am looking forward to writing on a weekly basis again, starting with this post.
In between how busy we have been, I did make myself take the time to enjoy nature around our property. In my attempts t seek sanctuary in mother nature, I decided to charge the batteries for my DSLR and go for some photo shoots. Because no post is truly a post without pictures, here are some photos I took of nature around the home.
Thanks for taking the time to read. Look forward to more posts in the future.
