Welcoming Another School Year

Homeschool year two, ???? ?? ????! ⁣

Last year was a bit rough when it came to homeschooling. I was second-guessing ??????????. At times, I felt like I wasn’t doing enough. Because of the pandemic, I gave myself this extra pressure of perfection. ??? ???? ???????? ??????? ??? ???? ??????? ?? ? ?????? ???? ?? ??? ????? ?? ? ?????? ???? ?? ??? ??????? It was a chaotic mess inside my mind. I felt as if needed to surround my kids with as much normalcy because they were losing so much. Which made me spiraled into this ??? ?? ???????. Because normalcy was out the window and it didn’t matter how much I planned, that year was different for all of us. My kids and I did the best we could offer.

This year, I’m going in with more confidence. At least, at this moment, I feel confident. The likelihood of it lasting is ????. But, I’m going to avoid that reality for now and focus on the ???? ????????. I’m looking at our first year, as trial and error. This time around, I have a sense of what works and doesn’t work for my kids. As well as, myself. My biggest ????????? this year will be to stop second-guessing. I need to trust in myself that I know my kids. And, be okay when things aren’t ???????.⁣

So, to all the parents going into this school year, (??????, ???????, ?????????????, ???????????), give yourself credit for adjusting to ????????? ???????????. Be proud of yourself and your kids for making it through, even with all the setbacks. Sometimes, just ????????? is enough.
