Is that all it's been?
Are you sure it's only Tuesday?
No, surely it is Friday because I am really ready for the week to be done.
Going into homeschooling I thought it was going to be sunshine and roses. Ok, not really, but I didn't think it would be this physically taxing.
Maybe it's the growing a human in my uterus part that is taxing also, but MAN ALIVE I am pooped!
I am trying to keep things really structured because I know that is what Seth needs. Also, that way we are not doing "school" all day.
I am trying to keep Seth on track with his learning because, unlike many other homeschoolers, I was not unhappy with public school. The only reason I am homeschooling right now is because we will (hopefully) be moving to a new house this summer, and I didn't want for Seth to have to bounce from school to school. I don't know if he'll go to 2nd grade in a public school, or if we'll do it at home.
I just don't know that I have it in me to be an all the time homeschooler. I am good at a lot of things, but I also need to know my limits. While I can teach my children, and do it well, is it what is best for all of us? I don't know.
I keep telling people we will take homeschooling 1 semester at a time. Right now my goal is to get through everything before the baby is born. Right now, I want for Seth to improve his math skills, reading, writing and comprehension. So that is what I am focusing on with him.
People keep telling me it will get easier.
We will get in our groove.
I sure hope so, because I am exhausted.
