For me, as a mom, the most difficult challenge of homeschooling is that I really do NOT get a break! There are no holidays, no “teacher workshops,” no summer breaks. You are on 24/7, 365. You are mom, principal, nurse, psychologist, gym teacher, math teacher, wife, bad cop, coach, chef, cleaning lady… and the list goes on.
I love everything about homeschooling, though. Even the challenges, because it is through them that I feel I and my kids grow.
I’ve watched my kids get excited when learning something new, or the first time they “get” something.
It's an unforgettable feeling!
