I thought once I had graduated a few kids, homeschooling would become easier. What I have found is that the older I get the more tired I am and the harder it is to stay focused and motivated. I hope (with the help of fellow home schooling moms) to blog a few postings on how to stay motivated and focused on a God size task and give readers a small glimpse into this journey.
For all of you homeschooler's out there- how about posting what keeps you motivated in the comments area of my blog. Lets share the ups and downs with one another.
In keeping this real, it is no secret to most of my homeschool buddies that HS'ing has never been easy for me. From the first day that I started this path I have had moments of doubt. I have had good years and years that I felt were nothing but an up hill battle. I have used almost every curriculum out there and finally settled on mostly a text book method-something I thought I would never do but surprisingly works well with my children and our life style.
My motivation tip of the day is- SUPPORT- without it I would sink. My husband is my biggest fan. He keeps me going on those days when I want to give up and throw in the towel. He helps me to create balance and see the real picture when I can't even see my hand in front of my face. He prays for me and then helps me to trust the Lord with all of our struggles and decisions.
What keeps you motivated????
