Clinging to My Priorities
It’s the one time of the year when I think – yes, maybe one day I will look back and say we didn’t do enough sit-down math and handwriting worksheets, maybe we spent too many hours of our lives out exploring and enjoying ourselves. Yep, it’s end-of-the-year assessment time. I think every homeschooling family I know gets a little rattled at this time of year about whether they’ve done enough.
Don’t worry: I have clung tightly to my priorities and have been making sure the kids still get their many hours of park and/or pool time every day, plus plenty of extra time added in for cloud-watching, afternoon napping, thumb-twiddling, duct tape creating, and general deep thinking in the guise of woolgathering.
