When we first started homeschooling five years ago, I thought I had it all figured out.
I had a school room with a lovely, perfectly organized set of books, curriculum, and manipulatives. I had a bell, all set and ready to ring for start time, break time, and lunch time.
It was going to be amazing.
And it was.
For exactly one day.
Then reality hit. My children did not do well in a school environment. It was one of the reasons they were no longer going to school. So why was I trying to recreate that exact environment in our home?
I am consistently the biggest problem in our homeschool journey.
