A friend asked me the other day:
"In a nutshell, how's it going?"
In a nutshell, it's going well!
There have been so many thoughts and moments running through my head. I don't know how I'll get them down fast enough. I'm sure I won't.
But, for now - here's a little bit.
:: It's challenging to homeschool with a 2 year old.
:: The girls are very obedient and always get their plans done for the day - by 3:30.
:: Losing social time out with the neighbors would kill them - the consequence.
:: I LOVE the research, lesson planning, teaching and the whole "school" part of it!
:: I know we'll never regret this school year.
:: Sophie asks everyday to go to school.
:: Halle repeats Sophie.
:: Ian doesn't know what's going to hit him on September 6th.
:: I am adjusting to this new role more and more each day.
:: Flexibility is essential.
:: A joyful attitude is essential.
:: I believe - 100 % - that homeschooling is a calling.
:: Week 1 felt really long.
:: Week 2 went really fast!
:: I'm very thankful for the weekends!
:: There are definitely moments of "What have I signed myself up for?"
:: When I lay my head on my pillow each night, I have happy thoughts about the day.
The past 2 weeks have been 2 of the greatest in my Mothering.
Josh keeps reminding, "Your sacrifice is making an impact!" I know that, but there are still moments of weakness.
We are all growing stronger around here - in many ways!
2 weeks down - 34 to go! But who's counting?! :)
