Homeschooling Journey: Week 3

It is hard to believe that this past week has marked our third week of homeschooling.  I can honestly say it has definitely been an adventure but is it normal to feel this exhausted in the beginning? Ha ha!  It’s getting better now considering that the nights leading up to homeschooling I was not getting much sleep due to excitement and nerves.  (Plus my gears were constantly spinning, bet you can relate)!

We are gearing up for our very first homeschooling field trip coming up on week four.  Palaestra families will be meeting out at Erwin Orchards for apple picking, cider and donuts, and a Bee 3-D adventure movie.  The girls are beyond excited and I can’t wait to meet more families.  This past Friday, September 16th, I got the privilege of meeting two new families at Palaestra, let me just say this excited me beyond words.  When you started homeschooling did you feel like a fish out of water?  I was so worried that I wouldn’t be able to connect with families since I noticed many have already been homeschooling for a while establishing solid those connections.  Thankfully, these wonderful families have welcomed me and other newbies with open arms.

How is your journey unfolding?  I would love to hear from you, don’t be shy!

~Happy Homeschooling =)
