Homeschooling Starts Again

102416205_WnhoD9Vr_c

It’s that time of year when all the homeschooling materials have been gathered, fresh pencils and paper have been purchased {I always love fresh notebooks…I have a paper thing.} and plans for lots of learning in the coming year are all written down and ready.

This is where I always need to take a step back for a moment before I jump into our new year with a plan to learn it all…right now. 

I have to remember to not compare my children to someone else’s crew.  They might have the perfect looking schedule mapped out and color coded.  They might have the next three years planned out to ensure a college scholarship.  But, God gave me these boys to teach and I’m the perfect teacher for them.  Awesome! 

I want to teach my children the love of learning and the desire to explore new things until they find the their spot in this world and know they are doing the right thing.

My homeschool planning needs to allow that to happen.  Hours and hours of school can’t compare to the hours they spend discovering their dreams and learning what they need to reach them.

It’s amazing what can happen when people follow their passion.

  1. I hope and pray you all have a WONDERFUL year ~ A year of exploring the passions God has placed in each of us! Those passions look differently in everyone. I’ve loved watching my kids grow and develop what they feel passionately about!
    The years go so quickly! School started here in Utah yesterday.
    Blessings to you all!
