Beginning at the End


I set up this blog last fall. And here it has sat unused until now. Oh, I played with my template, rearranged elements, and fiddled with the description a bit, but I didn't actually get to the posting part.

Initially, I thought a blog would be a great way for us to chronicle our homeschooling activities. But autumn slipped by, and it didn't make sense to start tracking our activities when we were wrapping up for the holidays. I'd start it in January, I claimed, but the new year yeilded no new inspiration about the blog. Before I knew it, it was May, and the school year that I had planned to track with my posts was over.

Summer now seems like the right time to get started (I've exhausted all of my other seasonal options), but it doesn't supply that easy "school year kick-off" post as a natural launching point.

Thankfully, the state of Georgia has given me something to do here, since I am required to write an assessment of my students' academic progress over the past school year and keep it on file. I plan to make my first few posts that file. So, my original plan stays somewhat intact. I will simply share our homeschool highlights in review and then branch out from there. Should any state or county school official ever need to check it, they may come away with a great recipe for grilled pizza dough, too.
