The road less traveled by

The road not taken

“I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I–

I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.”
~ Robert Frost, The Road Not Taken

I stood, staring down the two roads. One, worn from much use, seemed like the most obvious option. I knew exactly what lay ahead on that route. A classroom, my newly adopted daughter with special needs, IEP meetings, therapies, early morning wake up calls, experts who know what to do when I don’t.

Predictability and my comfort zone awaited me in that direction–time to myself, time with my two little boys, someone else to share the responsibility for the results, for her learning.

“The first time I really thought about what I wanted to do in life was a few months before high school graduation.”

My mom spoke those words on a recent visit, after reading through the kids’ compasses we’d completed in our homeschool.

She was impressed that her grandchildren, at ages nine, ten, and eleven, could articulate possibilities for their future–and that they recognized the way their lives could reach and touch others.

Shortly after Mom left last week I got a text message from her: “Could you email me more info about that compass? I’d like to do one myself!”

5 tips for a happier homeschool

Written by Rachel Wolf of Clean and Lusa Organics Skin Care

Homeschooling can be such serious business.

Each day you juggle more tasks than a CEO.

Learning styles, lunch, and laundry.

Geometry, groceries, and gardening.

Disputes, diapers, and long division.

Things to Do When You're Feeling Discouraged as a Homeschooler

The following is a post by contributor Angie Kauffman of Real Life at Home.

Homeschooling is such an amazing educational and lifestyle choice. The benefits of it are plentiful, and often get touted by homeschoolers.

There’s another side to homeschooling, however. That other side is that homeschooling can be challenging.

It can drain you mentally and physically. Even if it’s worth it, it is not an easy lifestyle to choose.

On the up side, however, there are things you can do when you’re feeling discouraged in your homeschooling lifestyle to help change your mindset and lighten your mood.  Sometimes, it’s just about making changes in logistics and in your thinking.

As an added bonus, it may also help your children feel better too.
