It's that time of year once again.
For one of the first times in recent memory, we took a long summer break. Now we are gearing up for Josiah's Junior year of High School.
This is going to be my 11th year of homeschooling. I have homeschooled the little squirt since his first-grade year. I can tell you that it gets better. I certainly have a more chill approach than I initially did. Of course, I also spent a billion years in college and have a billion more education credits. Those things kind of warp your mind a bit.
This week, Several girls on The Crew and I are getting together and using our blogs to write posts to encourage all the homeschoolers out there. Because we all come in so many shapes, sizes and flavors there are bound to be a lot of different experiences.
You know you can count on me to lay down just a bit of truth now and again. I'm good for it.
If I could sit down with you over a cup of tea and a piece of blackberry cobbler, I would tell you a lot of things. Mostly I would tell you not to worry so much. Some of the advice I would give you would probably be just hot air...I'm good at that. But at least there would be cobbler.
For now, where ever you might live in the world I hope you have settled down with an open heart and a good dose of grace for yourself.
This page will be my landing point for all the articles on the blog in this series. You can also check out all the other Crew Members and their blogs.
