So, looking at the past today feeling nostalgic. My daughter went back to school two years ago and my boys today. This was their choice and I think it is a good one, but that doesn’t mean that it doesn’t come without some anxiety and sadness. I was happy as I watched them riding down the street. I can not wait to hear about the day and have a plate of cookies ready for them. But I am still a little bit sad.
I really enjoyed not cleaning the kitchen every 20 minutes. I really missed the quick hug from little guy and the older one telling me in one breath about something he was learning about in Africa, how cool it was and do I know specifically why ice water is a little bit colder than ice.
I have learned so much homeschooling the kids. One of the things I learned is that I was a homeschooler, going to Catholic school in the seventies. We were homeschoolers when we schooled the older ones for pre-school and early elementary. We are homeschoolers now that I have three kids enrolled in the schools down the street. Homeschooling is not really about where you spend your days, it is an attitude about learning.
