Back to School

We just completed our first week back to “school”.  It was amazing to go into it with new eyes, focused on the end goal of creating college-ready adults, rather than getting bogged down in the pressure of checklists and schedules. I am so thankful to be privileged enough to snuggle with my babies and read a book about the migration of Monarch butterflies, see their eyes widen when they learn that Chocolate comes from a tree (and now we have to visit Brazil), and grasp new concepts in math and reading.  Yes, this week was wonderful.  I’m guessing I have until Wednesday before I start pulling my hair out.  As we start a new school year, I wish my fellow homeschooling moms peace, and to my friends who wave to the yellow bus every morning, I envy your serenity.  :)
