Another Year Gone By

I pull up my blog tonight to tell all of my readers that are still hanging around that I am going to do my best to start blogging again.  And I realize it was exactly one year ago today that I said that, and didn't post entire year gone by.  So, here goes.  I am going to do my best to start again!

My goal is to show the realities of homeschooling - the good, the bad, and the ugly.  So many Moms feel inadequate to homeschool because all they see is the "perfectness" of people's lives on social media.  My goal is to show you that homeschooling is not about "perfectness."   If anything your kids will show you all your imperfections!

So, our day was long, our day was tiring, but our day was productive!  Here's what a productive homeschooling day looks like when it's all over -

There's a pile of papers colored by the youngest - YAY, he was quiet while we got our group work done!  Wooohoooo!  That is a HUGE acomplisment in and of itself!  And, he will die if he sees them in the trash, so they must go on the fridge for a few days and then secretly be put in the trash can.

There's a mess on the dining room table, because who has time to pick up one subject before moving on to the next!  And, yes, we have a designated homeschool room, but we ALWAYS migrate to the dining room table!

There's notebooks/books and laptops laying around everywhere, because a certain 11 year old does NOT know how to pick up anything, but hey, atleast he is doing his school work!

And, of course there is a pile of dishes in the sink, because school work needs to be done before swim and basketball practice, so the dishes can wait.

And there's a screaming child, because he scraped his hand and has a "huge" booboo, that in reality I am unable to even see!

But, at the end of the day there are sweet kiddos, that actually got along for a few minutes on this particular afternoon! 
It really is worth it all!
