The fear and the stress of thinking I’ll miss something
or should have done something that I haven’t
or should have done it differently if I did.
Should they be studying Latin?
The voice of public school past saying it should look this way
or has to include that
or must involve a lot of paperwork. tests. grades. more writing.
I am pretty sure all homeschooled kid learn to speak in Latin
Will I fail them?
Will they get into college?
Will they wish they had gone to school?
Our 14 weeks of Latin study should count for something.
The voice of those looking in wondering how many hours we spend each day.
how I calculate grades. credits. hours. transcripts.
wondering how I know if my kids are “behind” or “ahead”
as if those things exist
Balancing a middle schooler and kindergartener and two in between…
Don’t you need more workbooks?
Oh gosh, we are relying too much on workbooks.
Should they be reading more?
We need more nature time outside!
They have way too much free time
and then not enough within a few days.
Can the Discover Channel just count as Science for today?
Until I am in the mood to do experiments all throughout the kitchen.
Veni, Vedi, Victus Sum
In the end
success ebbs and flows with this thing called homeschooling
I learn to appreciate my changing moods
my conflicting voices
my constant questioning
my daily grind
confident that most of these voices, questions and conflicts are universal to all moms.
well, other than the Latin part
