The following is a post by contributor Cheryl Pitt of CherylPitt.com.
I‘ve been homeschooling since 2001. The journey has been so much more – more exciting, more difficult, more blessed — than I ever imagined it would be!
As you read the Day in the Life series, I’m sure you’ll notice the fact that everyone’s day is vastly different. That’s a blessing of homeschool, we can do life with school. I’m a prime example of that right now.
When I began to write this post, I was very tempted to write what our day “should” look like, what I want it to look like, rather than the real thing. Why? Because right now our life is a mess. A beautiful mess, but still a mess. I’m schooling 5 kids from 18 months to 18 years. Plus organizing a bloggers conference, caring for my ailing grandfather-in-law, and all the other little bits of life like meals, bills, errands, etc.
