It’s the first day of the 8th-ish grade for Miss Homeschool Abbey. A day with the potential for much weeping and gnashing of teeth…and Abbey might be pretty upset about it too. I’m just kidding…it’s not THAT bad…but I am not a natural teacher. We do what we have to do when it comes to our children though…so that’s exactly what I intend to do…again.
Fortunately in this day and age, doing that isn’t what it once was. I can easily use a curriculum that is entirely online…which I am fortunate to have as I was not blessed with the creative genes that so many others seem to possess. My mother…being a teacher herself…could turn what looked to me to be a pile of trash into a replica of the famous sculpture of David…undoubtedly.
Welllllll…hmmmm….I can WRITE about my mother who could turn a pile of trash into the sculpture of David in a humorous fashion that may or may not make someone out there chuckle slightly…who knows?
Fortunately, for the world in general and particularly the youngsters she taught, I’m pretty sure that my mother never actually created the statue of David out of trash. That would’ve been an entirely inappropriate thing to do…being that Michelangelo’s masterpiece was nude and all…and appreciation for that particular level of the arts might be understandably frowned upon by the parents of those with tender innocent eyes!
So with thoughts of Michelangelo, David, trash, and inappropriate nudity I begin this first Monday of the first week of the 8th-ish grade of Abbey’s homeschool year! Wish me luck! I’m going to need it!
