I looked at the calendar today and realized that we are on the home stretch. I laugh and wonder how that can be that this year went as fast as it did. I remember going to the home school conference last year and being completely overwhelmed and just not knowing what it was I was “supposed” to do. I remember that there was a time that I was only going to do kindergarten and then promptly put her in 1st grade. I look now as I am looking ahead to 1st grade and thankful that I am able to homeschool my daughter.
As I was sitting in this conference with other homeschool moms I was reminded that I was so against the idea of homeschool. I really did not have a real reason why was against the whole idea other than it was not what I was normal to me. I also remember the time when I did not think that I was capable enough to actually homeschool. I was so afraid that I was going to mess everything up and my child would be behind where she needed to be. I can tell you that did not happen. I was thankful for those homeschooling pioneers who paved the way so that I could homeschool my children.
I am thankful that the Lord changed my heart and lead Jeff and I to homeschool our children. This journey really has been the best for our family.
