journaling -
We knew going into this gig that homeschooling wouldn’t be easy. Sure I hoped that everything would be sunshine and roses – the days would be filled with cuddles and reading by a toasty fire, lazy afternoons creating art, exciting experiments and tons of field trips. It isn’t. Days are often long – filled with nagging and micromanaging with dishes left in the sink, papers and books scattered, and rushing out the door to get to a class after searching, unsuccessfully, to find a missing notebook for twenty minutes. But remember why we chose this path as a family! The opportunities that homeschooling allows us. Interests can be followed and nurtured, possibilities opened. Today Makayla took a class on 3-D modeling and printing, trying her hand at some new technology. While she was doing that, Cooper and I explored all the live animals that the museum had on display – I didn’t know he loved snakes! We learned marine science while actually at the beach. We’re going to the DC monuments after studying American history this year. Cooper has learned to write his name and actually sits still for a story these days. Sure, Makayla and I still argue over math. Cooper manages to get in the middle of every lesson. But we’re learning and growing together as a family. So, when you’re ready to pull your hair over the latest homeschooling stress, remember the reasons you chose this lifestyle and the memories you’ve already made along the way. Take a breath and enjoy the possibilities you’ve made come true.
