For some reason, I’ve been blessed with homeschool gusto this week. I’ve been dreaming up Valentine’s Day themed trays for our shelves and having a great time planning fun activities for the boys. Homeschool has an ebb and flow to it, don’t you think? You have those weeks when you are dredging along, meeting the bare minimums. Then, you have those weeks full of wonder and joy.
Recognizing this wavering flow of ups and downs has helped me come to terms with the fact that all weeks don’t have to be amazing. It’s normal to have slower, less interesting weeks. But those amazing weeks, full of wonder….those are the ones that make homeschooling worth it.
