It's just not going to happen...

Ok, so I promised weekly school reports. It's not going to happen. Disappointed? As The Man in Black said to Vizzini in the Princess Bride, "Get used to disappointment." (grin)

In all seriousness, the same issues that troubled me last year when I gave up the reports are still on my mind. Mainly that it's hard to find the time to write the reports. I enjoy blogging and that's not how I want to spend my blog time. I also have a hard time making them interesting to read - I'm just not that good a writer and I don't want to burden the poor readers.

That being the case, there were a couple of folks who said they actually enjoyed the reports. For you, I offer this: I will post an overall 2008-2009 curriculum plan (eventually) and provide a permalink in my sidebar. I will keep the fun stuff - nature walks, history, great book finds - updated in the sidebar as well. And yes, I will occasionally be so excited about something school-related that I write a post about it.

Thanks for understanding. ya'll are the best!

I still feel the same way too! We've been at this only 5 weeks now and I've gotten in 2 good reports and 2 cruddy ones. They are long and kinda boring (mine, I mean - not yours! lol!) and I feel like they are such a burdern to have to write.
I guess I will stick to writing them when I have time and/or when something great is going on. Why shouldn't we have more fun blogging, right? We've got enough going on with our quiverfull of kids!
I love your sidebars too - you do a good job on them (I can't even keep those up either!)!

Princess Bride flashback - you know your mom took M and I to see that movie in the theatre when it first came out - so many fabulous lines!

Yo, I was there, too! The nerdy big sister??? ha ha just kidding. It was the B'wood Cinema, I believe. My kiddos love that movie now as much as I do.
