Day 31: Ready Set Go!
I won’t conclude this series by saying that your first or second year will be easy by any stretch of the imagination. The truth of it is that a lot of homeschoolers don’t take time in the beginning to fortify themselves for such a rigorous race. If you lose your way, just re-evaluate. Don’t escape and return back to what you left behind. Decisions are personal for each family, but, right now, right here, you need to take time to list everything that brought you to homeschooling (Option 5 on my page) because those ideas will serve as a beacon or signal to keep you moving forward.
Don’t ever buy into the mind-set that somebody else is doing it better. We all struggle equally with our weaknesses, but too we each bring our particular set of strengths to our children and husband.
Discounting what you can do and focusing only on what you cannot do is counterproductive to homeschooling. No, I am not saying to live in the world of superficial homeschooling or creating a homeschool facade. I do believe though in the curative value of positive thinking.
I am not talking about sugar coated homeschooling because there are hundreds and hundreds of support groups, dozens and dozens of print and online homeschooling magazines to pore over, lots and lots of sites for homeschool curriculum reviews and thousands of talented parents that are experts in any given field. Focus on how to improve your situation through education. That is practical homeschooling.
My wobbly knees when walking out from public school when my son was 5 have been made firm and stable only through use. Courage in homeschooling does not come from self-reliance either but knowing that an abundance of knowledge and tips exists in the homeschooling world if only you would tap into them.
I will conclude this 31 day series by saying that I would not trade anything I did for one moment in public school. Prayer, perseverance and patience have been part of my mainstays of my journey. Keep your long term vision clear and concrete through tears of happiness, sadness and plain downright frustration because in the end you are working hard for an eternal reward.
When the world says, “Give up,”
Hope whispers, “Try it one more time.”
Would you like to celebrate reaching the end of this 31 day boot camp? Let’s party!
Kelley and I would like to give away one workshop of your choice to 5 winners!
