Oh, the choices!
Options are endless when it comes to homeschooling, which is both a blessing and a curse. Allowing yourself a little grace is no small feat, but key when beginning the process and facing the unknown. Everyone starts out with a slight twitch in their eye, and the feeling of impending doom when they start homeschooling, and, in our current reality, many families are having to scrap their models of learning and restructure everything they know. Take comfort in knowing you are not alone! This is the time to test things out and have fun learning what works best for yourself and your family.
