Way back before this pregnancy started, I had a nice plan for our 4th and final baby. Conceive in about August/September of 2012, have the baby in May/June 2013, take the summer off from homeschooling while we adjusted to life with new baby, resume schooling in Fall of 2013. Voila, easy peasy lemon squeezy.
Enter Life: conceive at the end of Dec. 2011, have TWO babies born at the start of the school year in Fall 2012. 18 July, 2012, realize that I'm probably going to have a nervous breakdown unless I figure out what is enough and get all things homeschool-related planned before the babies arrive.
Yeah, so that's where I'm at right now. I woke up at 4:30 and finally got out of bed at 5. Tidied up the homeschool room, then came downstairs and got some curriculum ordered for fall. Asked for suggestions on schooling with a new baby (or two) in the household on a homeschool forum and have received some good suggestions, but also a lot of "Just plan for your life to be total chaos for 6 months." So right now I'm trying to take deep breaths and not get totally derailed into a puddle of tears and anxiety. I'll let you know how effective it is.
