I love hiking. I love the feeling of the fresh breeze on my skin, the sights of green trees, flowers and wildlife in its natural habitat.
But most of all, I love the view from the top – it makes all my hard effort worthwhile.
Maybe you love hiking, too. Or maybe you prefer to ride in a car to the top of the mountain. I’ve yet to meet a person who didn’t love a beautiful, scenic view.
Homeschooling our kids can be kind of like hiking. There are beautiful discoveries along the way for sure. But there can also be blisters, insect bites, and poison ivy.
The struggles and challenges we may encounter as we teach our children can leave us discouraged and frustrated – you know, camped out on a bench in the middle of the trail, eating all the M&Ms out of the trail mix bag.
