There was so much fear and anxiety leading up to the decision to homeschool. What’s funny, though, is that as soon as the decision was made, we felt amazing. A weight had been taken off our shoulders, and we felt like we had been given a new life. All those things we had been thinking about why homeschool could be great suddenly became very real. There are so many benefits of homeschooling.
The Way It Was
Life before homeschool felt so rushed. I was working lots in order to pay for the private school where we sent our kids. The kids would come home with reading, papers, forms (oh, the forms), and would have extra-curricular activities. We were running. Always running. Does that sound familiar at all?
