I want to quit homeschooling. I want to throw in the towel. I want to stop . . . Until God saw me struggling. He showed me what I needed to see. I had been listening to others and trying to please them instead of teaching my children the way they need to be taught and what they need to be taught.
No one knows my children better than I do, so why was I listening to those who might see my children about ten times a year? That’s 10 out of 365 days and not even the entire day. I see them 24 / 7, 365 days a year. I know what needs to happen I know how to make it happen, and it does. Have I ever failed? Epically. Have I ever had to start over in the middle of the year because something wasn’t working? YES. However, the one thing I have learned is–I have learned.
There have been some crazy days in the past four years that I have been doing this, and there have been some amazingly wonderful days, and there will still be more. No day is the same nor do I expect them to be the same. So, as I told my children, yesterday, “We’re all in this together.” We will complete it together, unless they decide to return to public school. Even then we will complete it together, because I will be behind them 100 %.
Until we meet again,
