I was packing up our swimming paraphernalia, three wet kids with their shellacked hair tight to their scalps, and the remnants of our pot luck dinner. When I was asked,
“Your homeschooling? How do you find that?”
I don’t know what to say in one sentence or even two.
I stumbled over a few of my lines. “Some day’s it’s crazy other day’s it very rewarding the day’s balance out”. But now I am home thinking of all the sentences I could have said.
“How do I find it, I ponder?” as I trip over three person’s shoes in the entrance,towels and toy’s that need to be picked up.
I find that at any given time I can have three to five rooms that need cleaning.
I find that my spare time is often thinking about how to help a child understand a concept or pondering better strategy in my parenting or school routine.
I find that I don’t get out much and my wardrobe consists of five of the same t-shirts only varying by colors.
I find that I say sorry often because I’m learning character as well as the children.
I find that I’m constantly surprised of all the things I don’t know like; in the arctic they pick clams from under the frozen ice when the tide is out. And Jack and the bean stalk is based on a true story…. ( sick)
I find that I’ve developed goals of how I want my children to grow up.
I find that there are godly woman to learn about parenting, relationships and education.
I find that I love teaching, so much so that I’m compelled to help the kids learn to add when they come to play with the girls.
I find that I love to learn and I love to teach and that’s what I want to give to my kids.
I best get to the things I find myself doing.
