They would tell you that even though I’ve been teaching my kids at home for 8 years, I still feel like I don’t know what I’m doing way too often! They would let you in on the secret that I’ve changed curriculum almost as many times as we’ve moved to a new year. They would whisper, “She still doesn’t fully understand how her girls learn best. Shhh…” Oh, and I’m fairly certain they would make sure you know that I constantly struggle with time management and distractions.
But hopefully they would also remember to tell you that even during the most frustrating of days, I know that homeschooling our children is the best choice for our family. That my husband and I have learned right along with our kids. That we have loved the flexibility of making our own schedule and learning in a wide variety of ways.
Lastly, they would probably want you to know that we’re adding to our student body this year! We have a friend who will be joining us–another 8th grader along with my oldest. (I talked about what curriculum we’ll be using THIS year over here.) We are all excited about this new development!
So how about you? What would your walls say?
This post was written to go along with a group of homeschool moms who wanted to be open about their homeschooling journey. If you have some time, enjoy visiting these awesome ladies!
