Now that navigating curriculum at home has become a part of my new norm, I eagerly anticipate enriching my four boys. It is bittersweet. I’m working diligently to shield them from the cauterizing talk of Corona around them, while insulating and immersing them with the love of all things literacy.
Documenting these efforts brings me such joy. I’m excited to hear them talk about what they’ve learned. Elated by their tiny discoveries and amazing epiphanies. Inspired to work harder everyday because they are joining me along this journey.
Around the world, I realize that we are faced with some dire circumstances; but, even on the darkest days of all, there is a light that emanates from the hearts of our children that simply shines through my soul.
I’ve opted not to complain about the new long hours, the constant devouring of my daily delectables as my refrigerator must now support the appetites of four growing boys. I won’t moan and groan about the intense level of energy that I’m sometimes not prepared for (well, o.k., I’m working on that one – smile).
What I will do, is create a curriculum for them, to help minimize the gaps of missing instruction. I will craft it with care to make it engaging, intriguing, immeasurable and most memorable. I will do my best to give them everything I have – because quite frankly, they’re the most innocent victims in this situation. I recognize it will require sacrifice and a great investment of my time and effort; but, I’m willing to put in the work – because they’re worth it.
