Homeschooling

Overcoming homeschool disappointment.

Blog Tittle

Today I am reflecting on our homeschool this year and here are a few areas that if I thought to hard I would become very disappointed in myself, my kids, and homeschooling.

  • The math book is still not near done! I get pretty upset about the fact that we’ve never finished a math curriculum and this year is no exception. We were pretty sick the kids and I from December to February sharing a germ that made schooling hard.
  • The science curriculum notebooks are still mostly empty! When did I think I would have time to fit a science curriculum into our daily schooling? We did memorize 24 science facts that the kids will use in the Challenge program, and for that I am grateful.
  • I could become pretty disappointed in the amount of screen time I have allowed my kids to partake in this year because I’m tired. Some days are just harder then others and the book work takes a back seat.

Yet even with those few disappointments, and I’m sure there are more, I want to change my focus. I want to remember to give thanks at all times in all circumstances, so what does that look like?

  1. Thank you Lord that I can homeschool my kids.
  2. Thank you Lord for a roof over our heads that we can be lazy under.
  3. Thank you Lord that all those years of teaching reading are beginning to pay off.
  4. Thank you Lord for options.

You begin to count your blessings, all of them and before you know it the blessing of peace and joy passes through you. I don’t have to stay in that disappointment for very long, and neither do you. I encourage you to get a journal and start 1. 2. 3. 4. and see if that doesn’t give you a new perspective.
