Hello, and welcome! I wanted to create a blog for some time now, but there are never enough hours in the day to even go to the bathroom, so how am I supposed to find time to write a blog? The answer is… I have no idea, but I like a challenge. So here we go!
In my late night, mind wandering aimlessly moments, I’ve spent hours thinking about what I would say, how I would start, and then it all went out the door, about 5 days ago. Yes, we locked ourselves into the house because it’s just gotten way too germy out there. And this is coming from the person who never met a germ she was frightened of.. But, things have changed as you are well aware. Or if you are unaware, may I suggest you open another tab in your browser, click over to the local news, and quickly catch up… but don’t forget to come back afterwards.
The very long story short is that I’ve been homeschooling our 3 kids for about 2 years now. Before that, we had a very, very rocky road in the public school system. We will tuck that story away for another day. Right now what I want you to understand is that if there was a yearbook published for parents, I would have set a record for the number of consecutive years I was voted “Most Likely to NEVER, EVER HOMESCHOOL!” And now, 2 years into homeschooling, my biggest life lesson is to never say never! I fully believe that if I could navigate the road to homeschooling our 3 children, each significantly different from one another, all having unique personalities, interests, abilities, and also their own strengths and challenges, then you can, too. As that little boy in the green hat, who never wanted to grow up once said, “All you need is a little faith, trust, and pixie dust.”
Stay tuned for my next post where I will be discussing some quick and easy ways to get started. I know many families all over the country that are being unexpectedly thrown into homeschooling. If you are one of those families, don’t worry, I want to help make this easier for you and your kids.
Get some rest, you’re gonna need it.
Until next time,
