this is our second year of homeschool.
Last year, 2 of our children were enrolled in an online public school
and our youngest was not yet school age.
Our oldest daughter started out in the online public school last year as well
but a series of events
led us to remove her and begin legitimately homeschooling her.
Thus, schooling at home had begun!
This year, however, we have prayerfully decided to
homeschool all 4 of our children.
I threw the “idea” back and forth for a couple of months.
My husband and I discussed it a lot and prayed about it even more!
Here’s the thing, every time I felt myself getting
close to saying
“yes, let’s do it!”
gut-sick and dizzy…
you know the feeling you have when you’re at an
amusement park and your getting ready
a crazy rollercoaster
and you’re excited but major nervous all at the same time!?
Yeah, I’d say that’s close to the feeling
I was experiencing.
I was completely overwhelmed at the idea of
schooling 4 children
who were all different ages and all in different grades.
Anyhow, after much prayer and begging God to help me…
Here we are!
(making our own burritos)
(story time with puppets)
(sight word practice)
(learning to write the alphabet)
(preschool games online)
(some sibling love 😉 )
(learning about fall with paint)
Although I am thoroughly enjoying
our homeschool journey,
I still fight with doubts and fears almost daily.
I still feel that I am completely
inadequate for this awesome and overwhelming task
that is before me.
I still know that I will make mistakes
and some days will feel like
a total fail.
But here is the good news…
I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me.
His grace is sufficient for me: for my strength is made perfect in weakness.
2 Corinthians 12:9
