A mom's perspective...
Monday mornings, in this house at least, begin Sunday nights. Since we don’t have to be anywhere most mornings, it helps. I get our snacks ready, gather the backpacks, and try to remember all that is needed.
Most Mondays my kids are excited about seeing friends and going to their classes. I, too, enjoy the fellowship. I also enjoy the fact that for this day my kids are learning from someone else that I trust with my children. The teachers give them so much – much more than knowledge! And on those days that it is rougher getting out of the house…..well, I am thankful for the small break in our routine to help me regain my perspective.
After we arrive at Heritage, the kids go to their respective classes. We're at the coop for all 4 hours, so I have two jobs, but not during the first hour. This hour I get my 2$ latte at the espresso cart. The money goes to support Heritage so its nice to save a couple dollars and support the coop. I then hang out in the parent room and chat with friends, or do some lesson planning for the week, or just relax. 2nd hour the kids go to their next class, and I serve as a class facilitator in one of them. I take attendance and help the teacher if there is anything I can do. I also get to see how my son is doing in a class environment which is pretty new to him.
After 3rd hour, we all eat lunch in the gym together. The kids run around and burn up some energy playing with friends.
Heritage is really more of an extended family for us.
