I love homeschooling my three daughters, I really do. However, this year has been a true test of patience and endurance! Neither of those qualities do I come by naturally. They come only by and through the grace of God! My third grader spends four times as much time complaining about the assignment as doing it. The second grader thinks reading is time to negotiate a couple more pages of her favorite subject (math). Let us not forget the kindergartener who can not sit still unless she is singing very loudly, but will only go play unsupervised if it involves a messy liquid. This weary momma in need of encouragement sat down and made a list of things I have learned since beginning my homeschool journey......since it seems I am the only one learning some days!
Here's a link to my blog if you are interested in learning my top eleven things learned.
“And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.” Galatians 6:9 NKJV
