iHomeschool Network's 10 in 10 weeks series over at The Homeschool Classroom. I thought long and hard about my topic...10 Tips For New Homeschool Families. In some ways I still feel like a brand new homeschooler myself and on at other times, I feel like we've really come a long way in the last four years. I know that seasons will change, our boys will get older and we'll all get a little wiser and more proficient each year....at least I hope.
But I remember that very lost and excited and overwhelmed feeling I felt when we first made the decision to homeschool our kids. The road ahead was wide open and when I say WIDE...I mean, there was a sign in front of me that had a thousand different arrows pointing in all different directions that I was free to take. I could choose any road I wanted. We could homeschool however we chose to...still can. And we love that freedom. But, because I was overwhelmed with the amount of choices and options available, I really tried to choose many different roads all at once. This only led to a road called "frustration".
I learned a lot in those first couple of years...I still am. And I am so grateful for the women who have come along side of me to love and support me along the way. I am also thankful for my online tribe that blesses me daily with their encouraging words and blog posts that really speak to my heart.
So, if you're new (or newer) to homeschooling or just in need of a bit of encouragement, I pray you'll head over to The Homeschool Classroom so I can share with you my 10 Tips for New Homeschool Families.
