Homeschool For One

As we gear up to start a new home school year, I’m always reminded of our first year. Kindergarten is such a beautiful time in a child’s life whether they’re in public school, private school or home school. The memories I have of my daughter being in Kindergarten are priceless. So naturally, I was looking forward to our son starting Kindergarten, too. However, I did start “homeschooling him just for fun” when he was 3 years old. So when he started school, he already knew how to write his name and 1,2,3’s/ABC’s. After about two months, the Lord truly moved on my husband’s heart about homeschooling. The truth is, once it was time for him to start Kindergarten, I was not ready to let him go.

Once we did start “officially” homeschooling, I wasn’t prepared me for the struggles of homeschooling only one child. Everyone I knew who homeschooled at the time were teaching two or more, including my sister. So there we were, just him & I trying to find out what was gonna work for both of us. At first, I didn’t have a Curriculum, just work books for every subject purchased at Wal-Mart. Every weekend, I planned our upcoming week and it was tiring, draining, and exhausting. Trying to make it fun everyday can be difficult, but is rewarding.

We have found the Classroom setting works best for us. We both really enjoy our School Room. He’s always loved pinning up things on our bulletin boards, putting books back on the shelf, doing our pledges and writing the date on the dryer easer board.

So now, here we are getting ready to start the 5th grade! We just have a couple of more things to get/do this week, like taking him to the Trophy Shop for his 5th Grade T-Shirt. He has the colors and scripture already picked out. 🙂

Our School Room renovation may not be complete before we start our 5th grade year, but we’ll still make his 1st Day of HomeSchool – the Best! 🙂

I maybe a little teary-eyed now about him growing up so fast… but once things get rolling, there will be nothing but smiles! In Jesus’ name! Amen!

God bless all us Mommas!
