Homeschooling is closeness to your favorite people everyday. 🌟 It’s worksheets on the floor so we can sit right inside the warm spot, where the mid-morning sun is creeping in through the window. It’s about going through the day slowly, drinking in every new kindergarten idea and thought. It’s picking through the brains of the children around you with questions and conversations. It’s reading that one book, you know, the one that they love, for the trillionth time. It’s letting them fold laundry and make dinner with you (even when it’s LESS than helpful — someday that will change). It’s knowing the ins and outs of everything they’re learning so you end up drill them while riding in the car or around the dinner table. It’s finding what they love, what they’re passionate about, and exploring it (White tigers? Black holes? Mailmen?) At this age, it’s probably a phase, but you’re diving into subjects that genuinely interest them which is showing them that learning is FUN and INTERESTING! It’s creating a positive foundation for “school” because learning never ends! We should all strive to be students of LIFE everyday. I feel honored and incredibly humbled and sober with the responsibility of Braydon’s schooling. He is doing so great and will be a 1st grader before I know it!!!
