Lessons About Time and Trust (5 Days of Lessons for Homeschool Moms) on Homeschool Coffee Break @ kympossibleblog.blogspot.com - part of the 2018 5 Days of Homeschool Blog Hop hosted by the Homeschool Review Crew @ homeschoolreviewcrew.com

Welcome to the 2018 Edition of the 5 Days of Homeschool Blog Hop! This is a favorite event for longtime Homeschool Review Crew members, and it's always exciting to have new Crew members join in the fun as well. We've all been looking forward to sharing ideas, encouragement and advice related to homeschooling, and we hope you enjoy visiting all the participating bloggers. For this round of the Blog Hop, I chose to talk about some of the many lessons that I have learned as I've played the role of homeschool teacher over the years.

Time and Trust

The time spent is worth it. Homeschooling is hard work. And it's time consuming. There are so many days that feel like I've been crazy busy all day long but haven't really done anything. Please tell me it's not just me?! Often it seems like grading, lesson planning, reading, or doing hands-on activities all take wa-a-a-a-ay longer than they should, and it's frustrating. But the time spent doing school with your kids is also time spent doing life with your kids, and that is never time wasted. Homeschooling is one of the most rewarding and worthwhile things I could ever have done with my time.

Pray more, worry less. Easier said than done, I know. This is where trust comes in again. I've learned that I need to trust God to guide me in making decisions about school and about life, and then I need to continue to trust him to fill in the gaps too. Homeschooling provides the perfect setting for moms to learn about patience, perseverance, grace, discipline, and faithfulness.

You've got at least twelve years . . . and it goes by much faster than you think.
Truth is? You've got plenty of time to teach math and biology and economics. You've got plenty of time to create art and read good books and take music lessons. But do your best to use your time wisely! I've learned to view academics as a vehicle for building relationships, because those same twelve years start to seem far too short as graduation day creeps ever closer. 

Hang on because it's a wild ride - possibly the best ride of your life!

Some days it seems so hectic - and my two are only preschool age (well, almost kindergarten for my son). The teen is in public school and it seems like each year flies by for him. I wish I could worry less.

Those days that last for-ev-er but the years that zip by. . .
