Homeschooling.


I started homeschooling my son this year. He is 4, so technically he's a preschooler. While it isn't always easy, its the best fit for our family. My son is a bit behind in speech, which limits his interactions with.. Well, everyone. I felt like if I sent him to public school he possibly could become the "troublemaker" or the "outsider". He has trouble concentrating. He gets angry if you don't understand what he's saying. He's shy. I love this boy to pieces, and couldn't STAND the thought of him getting made fun of for not being able to speak very well. Children can be extremely cruel. I got made fun of in school, nearly every year. I never felt like I fit in there. I wanted to be with my family. Now that I have my own family, I want to pursue that dream. Getting to be together, teaching my children and focusing on their strengths.. Teaching them about the Lord everyday, praying, reading from the bible, sharing my faith with them.. Is my goal. Is my happiness. I know a lot of people don't like the idea of homeschooling. No way of schooling is completely perfect, I'm just going with what I think is best for my family. I'm willing to change things up if need be. But I just wanted to share my decision. and why my blog isn't updated all that much. It takes up a lot of time to homeschool. Every nap that I takes, its time for me and B to do school work. When she doesn't sleep very long, we have to do it later in the day. We've been at this for 7 weeks now. Its exciting praying and letting God direct me in teaching my son. On my own, I fail. I get frustrated and impatient. With God's grace, I let go. He is guiding me. He knows my son perfectly, and when I let God direct us, its amazing to see how much B learns. I love my God so much, He is so GOOD! I can't keep that quiet at all. Friends, Jesus died for you and me, so that we can be free. He is my Rock and Reedemer. His love never fails, it endures forever.

May these words of my mouth and this meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, LORD, my Rock and my Redeemer. --Psalm 19:14

Have a great day! :)
