Still More Other Stuff -- Not Montessori


One of the other reasons we aren't doing school as much these days is because we've been contemplating a big move. 

We've been in the interviewing process for less than a month with a clean-tech firm and they just gave us a written offer. So, we are moving to Texas. We are absolutely thrilled with the job opportunity (it seems to be a more than perfect fit) and the offer is a very solid one. The timeline is very tight to get our house on the market and then we have a planned period of time before actually relocating. But, I've been preparing for the opportunity, should it come through, by running financial scenarios and painting bathrooms, so I know with the entire family working together, and a little bit of faith, we'll make it there just fine.

So, for the next few weeks I will be a little quiet here on the blog. Since we are "missing" a few months of the regular school year, and I intended to do school year round anyway, I am quite sure we'll pick up our classroom work when we are settled there. So definitely look for posts here as you are preparing your Montessori homeschool endeavors over the summer.

  1. Wow! I know that moving is not an easy thing to do, period, especially not with children in tow and everything that adds to the mix (it's the craziest thing, they think that no matter how busy you are getting ready to move, they still want to be able to do normal things - like, you know - eat three times a day! hahaha). I hope you have a successful move!

  2. Congrats on your big move! We just did this last year and while it was stressful (settling in, even a year later is still is a little stressful!) it is refreshing too. I remember the day we started unpacking our school room (not intending to start school formally yet) and the kids were so excited, like they were being reacquainted with old friends. There was so much spontaneous work that day we picked up school even sooner than we were really ready and organized for it. It remains one of my most vivid memories of our move...right next to Logan puking at 6:00 in the morning on our cross country drive and going into a cheap hotel and asking to buy some of their towels. I won't wish that part on you :) We will keep you in our prayers and look forward to hearing more about your adventures!

  3. Good luck with your move! New place and new beginnings, how exciting! We are just settling in after our move to the west coast. What an experience for the whole family a move is!

  4. LOL! I had a feeling something was up! Congrats on the new job. I hope your house sells quickly. As of today, we are the proud owners of electrical in our kitchen! I've mostly had no power the last few days...that meant no phone, no computer, no iPad. Boo. Now hopefully things will be a little more normal. I should take pictures of our school room all wrapped up like a bubble so we can have school while construction goes on. We haven't missed a day! It is much easier than moving.
