Welcome to Motivational Mondays! I'm kicking it off with a series called "Why Homeschooling Is Awesome." I think reading supportive and encouraging words is a perfect way to start off your week. Please feel free to leave a comment with more reasons you love to homeschool. Thanks for stopping by!
I love my family, as I'm sure most people do. When I think of all the extra time I will get to spend with my kids while homeschooling, I feel nervous, scared, exhausted, but also very excited! I can't wait to log those hours of interaction and getting to know my children. I have some guesses as to what they will like to do and the types of personalities they will have, but I know that they will surprise me. It makes me happy to know that I will get to see, first hand, how they develop and grow into little people. I also feel it is a great way to maintain the importance of our family unit.
Don't get me wrong. I know there will be times that we drive each other crazy. Hey, it already happens now (and they are only 2 and 4 years old!). Haha. But I know in my heart that the extra time we will spend together will nurture our individual relationships and will be a great blessing in the end.
Taking time for each other is the key for harmony at home." - Dieter F. Uchtdorf
*Disclaimer: I am not implying in any way that homeschool is superior to public school or any other method of education. Each child is different and parents have differing circumstances. I believe parents are entitled to make choices for their children without disdainful judgement or hurtful criticism. The purpose of this series is to motivate and encourage other homeschoolers or parents thinking of homeschooling.
