We were able to put my daughter in a lovely private christian preschool last year. But our finances for this year were tapped out by medical expenses. My husband ended up in the hospital overnight for fainting while driving. My daughter had to have surgery to correct her bilateral ureter reflux, and right after that my toddler son got a double inguinal hernia! So we decided to homeschool … just for a year … how hard could kindergarten be?
REALLY HARD!!! I’d really like to make a long list of complaints I have, but I feel so foolish when so many have tried so hard to help us. We have an awesome charter school as part of the Paisley Program, so we didn’t have to buy curriculum. I think the biggest problem I encounter, though, is time management. And I don’t mean just juggling my day, I mean juggling my year.
The kids got sick. We changed curriculums and had to wait for it. My son had surgery. We had to travel. I launched an online fitness studio to make ends meet, because I can’t really teach outside the home right now. The kids got sick again. The holidays came. The kids got the stomach flu! We have relatives visiting …
How do you moms do this!!!???!!! I am tearing my hair out! When we do manage to get a couple days in row of homeschooling done, it’s a constant fight because we’re trying to establish the routine all over again. Did I mention that the lovely calendar I have on my kitchen wall is never up to date (and I personally hate how it clashes with my decor)??? Help Please!
