I love homeschooling. We’re over half way through our first official year with Jesse and school ranks high among his favorite activities and mine. He’s *that* close to cracking the whole reading thing, and he has an insatiable appetite for learning new things.
We’re lovin’ it, but the truth is, I was nearly burnt out before we even started homsechooling, trying to craft our homeschooling vision and choosing curriculum. I was sleepless, insecure, confused, overwhelmed, and feeling ridiculous because I had been homeschooled – “this was supposed to all be very natural, wasn’t it???”
What turned things around? Reading a few good books written by the pioneers of the homeschooling movement. Find my list of favorite books for young mothers (homeschool-minded or otherwise) over at YLCF’s March of Books today.
