My friend Amy Milcic, who blogs at Busy Boys Brigade, asked me to participate in her 20 Days of Homeschooling Encouragement Blog Party and my post goes live today.
When she asked me, I was curious what I'd write. My first thought was "Homeschooling is hard." Not so encouraging, you know?
But that started off a meditation on how, yes, Homeschooling is hard work, but, I remind myself - I speak to myself - that Homeschooling is valuable work.
So, that's what my post is about, Homeschooling is Hard (Yet Valuable!) Work
From that post, I wanted to share this - preaching to myself:
Seeing their wonder, excitement, and struggles; counseling them in the midst of their temper tantrums, frustrations, and successes; encouraging them in their joy and sorrow are all privileges for the homeschool mom.
I hope you hop over to Busy Boys Brigade, read the rest, and are encouraged. It was good to remind myself of these things.
