Goodbye 2018, Hello 2019

Did 2018 fly past or is that my imagination? Seems like it was just a few days ago that we celebrated the start of 2018 and that it is impossible that we are about to welcome a fresh new year, but my Dad always said that time moved faster as you got older, and as with most other things, he was correct.

So, are you ready for the coming year? I know I am not feeling ready to embrace a new year, but it comes whether I’m prepared or not, so it’s time to bid a fond adieu to 2018 and plan to have the best year ever. What’s on your self-improvement list for the year? Tell us in the comments.

Back in the groove?

Here in the Smith Sisters School for Boys, we’ve got the January Blues. We are struggling to get back on track with school, our schedules, and life in general.

Aunt Kristy/Mama has been sick, missing several days of work, and even more of school. Aunt Jodi/Mom has been sick, missed some work and some school. Mr. T and a Slick have had trouble focusing after their Christmas break that was longer than planned due to illnesses. We’ve been a hot mess of schedule juggling, coughing, exhaustion and fevers. Everything has felt like this...

BUT... hope springs eternal, yes? We are closing in on our first REAL week of school since the new year started, the schedule juggling is calming down, and we are all nearly well again. Take that, January Blues. 

How about you, lifelong learning friends? Has the new year been kind to you and yours? Are you chasing your New Year’s Goals with reckless abandon or are you still buried in holiday decorations, leftovers and wrapping paper bits? Does your student need some post holiday break assistance in getting back on track? How can we help you conquer the dreaded...

The Holidays are Here

This last week saw Thanksgiving arrive and depart, leaving the Holiday Hustle in its wake. 

The holidays are upon us, friends. And whether you celebrate Christmas, observe Hanukkah, enjoy Kwanza, or you’re too cool for Yule, the holidays always mean an avalanche of extra events to attend, cookies to bake, and gifts to purchase. School is out, which means you might need to be looking for somewhere for the kiddos to be while you head to work each day. 

Consider this a friendly reminder of two kinds...

 1. Add a few of our events/camps for the kiddos to your calendar before it gets overly filled with other things. It will give them something fun and educational to do, and give you peace of mind while you head to work each day over winter break from school.

2. It’s ok to say no to things that don’t fit with your family’s schedule or priorities. Don’t be guilted into taking on so much that you can’t enjoy the holiday with your family.
