Our First Year Homeschooling

The school year is almost over. We are about to finish up on our lessons and conclude our 1st year of homeschooling. It has been a great journey so far. I am so grateful that we have more "up" days than "down" days so far. I have seen my daughter grew in her love of reading, learning and studying the Word of God. I also learned more about my daughter's strengths and weaknesses. My son also has finally begun to love learning on his own.

We were also blessed to have been able to find a local homeschool support group which meets once a month. I have learned so much from veteran homeschooling parents and of course, I am glad that my kids met other children who are homeschooled too. At least, they know that they are not alone in their homeschooling journey. We were also able to find a ballet class located near our home so we could easily attend the classes. In fact, they will be having ballet recital very soon.

During this summer break, I want to find an art class, sports lessons or music lessons too. We might look for guitar lessons or piano lessons which are affordable. We were not able to focus much on those areas during the school year but I am really praying for good resources.

It is truly inspiring to see your kids learn and to learn about them at the same time! Thank you Lord for such a great opportunity that you gave me.

Congratulations, you survived your first year, by God's grace, woohoo! I'm so happy for you, Chris. Indeed, if God leads you to homeschool, HE will enable...and provide. Praise God!
