Wouldn't it be nice to have life go along smoothly and for there to never be any bumps or situations for us to deal with?
Well . . . . life just doesn't work that way.
Learning is a HUGE part of our everyday life. I'm pretty sure that deciding to homeschool has probably been the biggest adventure that I've ever taken. However, after 18 years of homeschooling I have learned a few things.
It has been a hard 4 years for our family. Our homeschool adventures have been meshed with doctor visits, often being called away from home and plenty of independent learning required from my high schoolers.
3 months ago I was asking myself what to do since we were so behind on our homeschooling. I knew that we had good reasons to be lagging behind because I had a replacement in December. But it is so overwhelming and discouraging to get to December and realize that you still have more than half(more like 3/4) of your school year still to do.
So today it is LOVELY to see we have made significant progress in math, history and science.
Since we have a little more breathing room, we am ready to work more writing in to our daily activities. I know that one of our FEATURED posts is a treasure that will help me to convince my reluctant writer that writing can be fun and is used in real life!
Life is Lovely
