Ah, what a perfect picture of what homeschooling looks like around here.....NOT!! LOL! Zachary snapped this photo and it does look peaceful and organized but let me tell you, right before this Nolan was running through the room being a firetruck, baby Samuel was screaming his discontent at being on the floor out of momma's arms (how dare I?! LOL!) Kyalynn was singing while I was trying to teach (Kyalynn is ALWAYS singing!) and Connor and Gabriella were fighting over who got to sit in the pink Dora chair. ACK!! :)
Homeschooling the little's has definitely made me humble. It is so incredibly different than homeschooling Zach and Ryan. Not that it's bad...just different. I am still trying to find a good fit for them and myself. I've tried several different ways of doing things but because of the wide area of levels and abilities nothing has clicked...yet! I just recently came across a blog momma whose ideas have caused creative juices to stir inside me and I've been busy planning, preparing and praying. Can't forget prayer. That's the most important part!!
"All your sons will be taught by the Lord, and great will be your children's peace". Isaiah 54:13
We actually started back to school beginning of July but I'm tweaking as I go. The point is that just because the picture looks serene doesn't mean it is and that what works for one family might not work for another. God called each of us to parent our particular children and He will strengthen us, guide us and equip us for the task!
I've had several ask me about homeschooling and the nuts and bolts of it. So, I'm going to post on the Homeschooling Link above the resources, links and webpages that could be beneficial in your researching and planning your own homeschooling.
I hope this helps and if you have any questions or want to bounce ideas off of me I'd be happy to help!
