i hate spring.

lovely post title, i know.

this is the time of year when i begin to panic.  about a whole lot of things but mostly school.

i homeschool my kids.  i mean, sorta.  i kinda homeschool em.  i kind throw em to the wolves (or pigs, goats, or calves) and hope for the best.

while this has been our best homeschool year to date, i am still behind as usual.  being behind makes me twitch and get itchy.  all sortsa freaked out.  and i start deciding that i am done with this homeschool gig altogether.

so there’s that.

it’s been pretty all consuming for me lately.  struggling with feeling like i’m doing enough for my kids.  considering different co-op options, or if we’ll even do co-op at all.  wondering if we should add a sport to our already full enough schedule.

this school and kids and family and life stuff is really hard.  and i’m not good at it.

you’d think with warmer days and sunshine i’d be doing a bit better but that doesn’t seem to be the case right now.  i still feel like it’s the middle of december and it’s foggy and i can’t breathe.

  1. Highs and lows are normal and at least you know that you’re one day closer to a good day/season. Your support system is strong, think of the dozens of people who love you and would lend an ear or drive to you and just hang out to feed your animals with you. That’s a sign of a good life, even the life of a homeschooler. 🙂 (Which is crappy sometimes…)

  2. Will you someday do a post about why you homeschool? Especially now that you’re a seasoned homeschooling mom. Have your reasons for doing it changed at all?
    You know I’m a school director and was a teacher for many years before becoming a director. So I feel very strongly that all children should receive a good education. I really think homeschooling can be a wonderful way for children to learn, especially the way your children are learning. I have a very close friend who tried to homeschool her 3 kids this year and it did not go well, to say the least. The kids were back in public school by November. I have another close friend who has been homeschooling for years and is doing an amazing job. Her children are thriving. Anyway, I’d love to hear more about your reasoning. You’re so honest about the difficult parts, but obviously there’s something bigger that motivates you to stay with it. Inquiring minds want to know! (Nosy friends want to know!) LOL!

    PS Feel free to ignore this, of course, if you don’t feel like gettin’ into it! 🙂
