Meet my kids, my world. The smiles that greet me in the morning, the brood that clings to me throughout the day, the littles that wake me at night. These five adorable, precious children are the reason that I smile each day, and sometimes the reason I want to pull out all my hair. I mean, lets be real, it isn’t all candy canes and lollipops.
My oldest is 7 and my youngest is 1. I try to homeschool in between making snacks, cleaning the house, dealing with my home based business, occupying toddlers and bouncing an active baby. There are days I feel like I don’t have time to breathe let alone have a shower! But when I do have a minute to sit down and drink a FULL cup of coffee… I find I am completely content and happy with my life. I am living my dream. Some young girls may dream of having a career, from as long as I can remember I dreamed of having kids and homeschooling them.
This is my journey to make homeschooling more than just something I “do” and transform it to a way of life. Create an environment where learning is fun and interesting. Finding that seed of wonder and planting it in my children’s minds. Drawing together closer as a family and building relationships with one another that don’t wither over time. Teaching my kids our values and building a foundation and framework for their lives that will serve them all their years to come. To laugh with my children, to play with my children, to learn and explore with my children. To not miss one of their “ah ha” moments, to see the spark of understanding in their eyes, to marvel at the joy in a new discovery.
This is my journey to go beyond just surviving life with 5 young children, but to thrive with them.
