Can I be real here? I mean brutally honest? It's confession time of the homeschool variety. All superhomeschool mommas, please don't read any further. I will feel your chagrin at what I'm about to admit and will lose sleep over disappointing so many of you. ;-)
We have had to repeat Week 1 of Year 3 twice, maybe three times, and we just now got to Week 2. My head is hanging with homeschool mommy guilt. We actually started school in early August but between a hospital stay, two surgeries, and multiple sicknesses we are woefully behind with our Tapestry of Grace. On top of that , we were trying to finish up Year 2 the first month or so of school...so yeah, we are not on a "real" school schedule.
We are on our own schedule and it is taking me a while to be okay with that. I don't think I am there yet. I am still feeling terribly guilty for not being where we "should" be. Yes, I am comparing myself and our school to those super homeschooling mommas out there that have it all together and are exactly where they thought they would be on this day and at this time of their year.
Super homeschooling momma I am not. Shoot, I'm doing good to remember that we need to do school everyday!
So there it is. I am feeling like a failure at the moment. I am wondering how we are going to accomplish our year and get everything done.
I think some call it year round schooling! lol We are definitely going to have to do some serious schooling this summer to "catch" up and make up for the time lost at the start of the year.
And that's okay. We have flexibility and can make our school work the way we need it to. I just have to get over my expectations and roll with what God has brought to us. I need to relax and enjoy where we are at and what we are learning.
I need to enjoy my kids. Remind me of that will ya when I start freaking out next time, will ya?
