I attended my very first workshop of the year last month.

The workshop was hosted by poet d. ellis phelps. (Click this link to learn more about d. ellis phelps.)

Wonderful lady.

From this workshop, I created one new poem (not yet finalized), and generated ideas that could potentially become poems later on.

I’ve actually signed up for the 6-month workshop series that runs 1 day a month from January through June of 2022. The next workshop is on February 10th. (More about that here.)

It may not seem like much, BUT it gets me writing—and thinking about poetry again.

In December, I believe it was, I attended my very first monthly meeting for the Poetry Society of Texas.

Since COVID began, these meetings have been taking place over zoom rather than in person in the Ft. Worth area.

When they were in person, I was never able to attend. (That’s just too far for me to be able to easily, and affordably, travel at this point in time.)

Zoom is totally doable for me, but I always forget. So I was very happy to have remembered this meeting and been able to participate in it.

I did miss the January meeting, however, because I was attending the writing workshop and the two had some crossover in their timing.

So, here we are over halfway through our second homeschool year and I’ve decided to make a change in curriculum.

We will still be using the same publisher, so the content really shouldn’t change much if at all. But, I’m moving my oldest from workbooks for science to online.

I’m hoping this will help him to work more independently, and take some initiative to get his work done without being told to do so.

I figured since he was moving on to the next grade level in that subject it was a good time to make the switch.

I’m also hoping this change will shorten my school days.

There are only so many hours in a day and I spend most of them doing schoolwork with my children because none of them want to work independently or take the initiative to get their work done.
