one teacher, lots of books, and sadly…dirty looks

As we have been implementing a regular learning schedule here, there has been resistance.  I won’t name names.  That’s not fair.  I will say that this resistance has been a learning experience for me.  I didn’t really want to learn these things about myself, but I did.  I learned that when for the umpteenth time a child drops a pencil or sticks it up the nose or in ears, I can be heard plea-shouting, “Please do not stick pencils in any orphases again!”  Honestly, What’s the fascination with that?

I also learned that having everything planned out is very good for everyone.  We can’t give up for the day because there’s a schedule to stick to.  A strict schedule must be adhered to if we are to enjoy the summer warmth outdoors.  I’m thankful I was able to complete the lesson plans.  Chocolate does so much for me, I can’t even tell you!

I’m also thankful to teach my children (no matter how many pencils drop).  I love to see the wonder in their eyes when they learn something amazing.  I love to see the curiosity during a science experiment.  I absolutely love when they relay the information they learn to other people…and teach them something.  I love homeschooling my children.  I truly do.  There are ups and downs, there are steps backwards, but there is an incredible amount of achievement and joy for everyone.  We have endless opportunities here to be knit closer together because of it.  And, we all know how much I love knitting.

Three chairs and two pencils up (off that darn floor) for homeschooling!  We shall finish this marathon together.  Be encouraged, you can do it too.
