Changes & Homeschooling
Well...my family has homeschooled off and on for the past 8 years. I've always been a structured homeschooler...using a complete curriculum package and it's always been great. Since bringing the three kids back home this past winter...the same old same old isn't working. It's not working easily for me and not effective for a couple of my children. So...for the first time in my adventures of homeschooling I'm doing some serious re-evaluating. What do I keep? What do I throw out? How much trust do I give to my childrens ability to learn? How much do I trust myself without everything being planned out for me? I think that if I can let go we will thrive! I pray I can let go!
I am a mom of 5 who loves to homeschool, compose, teach, cook and play. I hate to do dishes but I love to vacuum floors. I'm married to a great guy who adores me and our children. I could have never imagined the chaos, joy, pleasure and love a family like this would bring. I feel blessed to live such a very full life.
