It’s week 3 of the second year of homeschooling! YEAH! You can read why I brought the kids home from public school here. I’m excited for this year as I have officially :
It’s hard to get it all done I tell you. So many on such different levels but we just try to take one day at a time and do the best we can. I sometimes crush under the pressure of Momma, school teacher, wife, housekeeper, playmate…. the list goes on. Sometimes, I must admit and be honest, I throw my hands in the air, put everything away and just do nothing. Always makes me feel worse in the long run so this I am not advising this at all;)
I try to get Dexter working independently while I start with Magic Bean and Princess. Wild Bill does good on her own in the morning with her reading and math and The Dude plays on the ipad, does file folder games, or small busy bags. Then I just try to rotate them and help where need be. In the middle of it all there is still food to prepare and a house to clean. It somehow, by the grace of God and a lot of team work, all gets done.
If I had to advise any new homeschoolers or homeschooling a house full mommas out there I’d have to say: Just take it easy, it will all work out. It always does. If your fulfilling your calling, God will always be faithful to walk with you every step of the way!
