I was starting to feel stressed out over homeschooling. What am I doing? Are we just gonna hang out at home forever?
But today, I went supply shopping.
And all of a sudden I needed! A binder for attendance, and replacement rulers, new glue and tape, sharply sharpened pencils and pencil sharpeners, erasers, a new mini board and dry erase markers, that book i'd been wanting.
I bought some stuff just because it was well priced, but made sure to take inventory of my cart and making sure that EVERYTHING I was purchasing had a specific use. All of a sudden, my confidence came back. The giddiness of school supplies overcame any little anxiety I had been feeling.
A new journal was all I needed to start planning all of the projects I have been wanting to work out. My calendar is getting full, my project list is getting full, and all of a sudden I find myself thinking: "Will I have enough time to complete all these awesome projects?"
Halloween, Valentines Day, 100 Days of School, Weekly Celebrations. I love being the classroom mom and teacher all in one.
I love homeschooling, having my kids next to me, letting them sleep longer, forming partnerships within themselves, being there for the light bulb moments.
Today, I went from being stressed to realizing that I am truly blessed.
