Here are some things I've learned in my first week of being a home school mom:
1. Man I rock at this thing! Wait? What? That was only one week? Not the entire year? Okay, maybe I should change this one to I am exhausted! Seriously didn't think I would be so exhausted after each days school time, but I am. The first day went really smoothly, no fights, all fun. But the second and third day came and let's just say it was a little bit tougher. Our youngest threw fits and our oldest would get jealous. However, even with those bad attitude times we finished school by lunch time each day!
2. Freedom rocks! Seriously, one day our youngest was having trouble paying attention during reading time. So instead of forcing him to stay on the couch and read to me I asked him if he would like to lay on the floor and read to me. He said yes. We did that for a while and then I asked if he would sing the book to me. That was really fun! He did really well when he was aloud to sing it to me! Another cool thing regarding freedom is that we got to go to Chick-fil-a on Friday and do our schooling there!
3. I am NOT smarter than a first grader. The science that our youngest is doing is way more complicated than I would have imagined. I am 100% confident that I could not win on the game show "Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader?". Is that show even still around?
These are just a few of the things that I have learned in my first week as a home school mom! If you were to ask me if I'm happy with our choice after this first week the answer would be yes! Now ask me again in a few more weeks and we shall see. 😃
