Truth told, I have a love/hate relationship with homeschooling. Allow me to explain.
I love teaching the kids. I love teaching them about history, science, and other subjects from a Christian perspective. I love praying with my kids before hard lessons and tests. I love going out and exploring our world and using books to back up our findings. I love that life is school. Life is learning. It's a lesson I was taught and I love teaching it to my kids.
On the other hand...
I hate mornings. Seat work happens in the mornings. My bad morning mood can carry over into seat work time. I hate being told how to teach. Especially by a 6 year old. And trust me, he knows. He knows it all. He will teach me before I have even begun to teach him. I hate having a pouting face staring at me when I correct them. I hate that my perfectionism has rubbed off on them and to fall short is to fail in their eyes. I hate that I so often feel like I'm failing.
But for today, I love homeschooling. I love snuggling when reading. I love that Tyler wanted to do THREE math pages today. I love that he did this after telling me two days ago how much he did not like math. I love that we get to do school in the summer. (Psst - don't tell the kids!)
I'm off now. I've got more snuggles and learning to do!
