Mission Accomplished!

Mission Accomplished

I am considering that I have achieved September's mission, which was to have all of my daughter's curriculum planned out in writing and posted on the blog.  Now here come the slight twists..... I realised that doing a formally planned cultural curriculum just isn't workable at the moment given my time commitments so I have shelved all my lovely ideas for reconsideration in February when I will magically have two days just for Eve!...... I also realised that although I would love to post my plans and resources for others to use, that isn't possible at present either due to time, knowledge and software limitations so I am shelving that plan until next year also..... perhaps I could make it a 'Mama's mission' to get it up and running!!!!

I already posted all my work on the blue series of Montessori (see August archives) and the list of maths abilities that i would like to have worked through by the end of the year.  I have done myself a 'skeleton plan' from which to work and that is 'good enough'.  I also consider this a triumph over my perfectionist self that often ends up doing nothing just because it isn't perfect!


  1. Good for you Jen! Sometimes it's hard for us to acknowledge that things don't actually have to be perfect. Good enough IS good enough! Way to go :-)

  2. Oh, I used to be the SAME way! Everything HAD to be perfect!!!!! But, somehow, after 5 kids, I have changed...quite a bit! Sometimes I kinda wish I were more like how I used to be...perhaps I would have a cleaner house...or I would know what we were going to have for dinner tonight...or I would already have our homeschool lessons planned out for the remainder of the year. Sigh...perfection...I have a love/hate relationship with it! LOL
