That’s exactly what I was saying a couple of weeks ago as we were going along our homeschool journey. While my older boys were doing completely fine (they are doing their schooling online through Sycamore Academy), I was questioned whether I had chosen the right curriculum for my 1st grader. Also, I had yet to start my preschooler on anything because I had spent so much time stressing about other stuff going on in my life and just trying to get into a good routine was becoming hard.
Don’t worry, I believe I have it all figured out now. I had thought I should do one curriculum in the beginning, but went with something totally different. Now, I am sure I should have chosen the other curriculum, and even though I’ll be out money from the first curriculum purchase, I have decided that it is better to switch now than to wait…or keep wondering. So, this week we will be ordering a new curriculum for our 1st grader and if all goes well we should be starting it very soon. (I’m excited!)
The best part about all of this is that I am learning. I am learning that no one curriculum is perfect and that every child learns differently (and all 5 of mine definitely do!) I am also learning that it doesn’t matter if we miss something one day and make it up another, we need to do things the way that works for us and our family. We are really loving all of the time we get to spend together as a family now and are looking forward to many more years of homeschooling.
Do you homeschool? If so, please leave a tip for someone that my be just starting in the comments below. Maybe just something simple or something long winded, we don’t mind!
Thanks for stopping by!
