Sometimes you just need a change of pace. It’s not that the activity is bad, it just doesn’t fit your needs for the current time. I think this is how the kids and I are feeling right about now. Spring co-op is just around the corner and, while we would normally be gearing up for this season, we’ve decided to take the semester off.
I think our decision was motivated by several factors. Co-op makes for an early day and a long day; we just don’t know if we care to be that tired. Co-op is on Fridays; our library day and field trip day. Other activities are also beginning to come up, which we are a little more excited about. (More on that soon!)
So, while we are excited to see how others enjoy co-op this season and we wish them all the best, mommy is enjoying a small sigh of contentment and the kiddos are grateful to get a little more rest.
The next few months are going to be tremendously busy and there might be a few major changes in our routine, so this one little choice is a welcome one. It means a lot less work and a more relaxing semester for all of us.
Will you be doing co-op this season?
