Reading a couple of homeschool blogs recently has made me tired.
I get tired reading about all the marvellous things that others are doing with their children. All the fabulous read aloud times.
All the curriculum talk.
I started reading about a
It is *so* not me.
I moved over to
a Thomas Jefferson Education.
Hello?? Where would I begin to label my children - core? scholar? love of learning stage?
No, better to stick with what I know best. Living and learning. Unschooling. Relaxed homeschooling. Or lovin' life.
However, I am failing even this.
One son is going through a "argue with mum" stage. The didactic stage of the Trivium? Or perhaps the rhetoric stage?
But I am failing at being a good sounding board. He and I are just not connecting as we should. Youth Group at church is also not helping - to be frank,it is a pain in the butt right now.
I am tired.
Okay, unschooling is about living together. But why do I just want to curl up with a good book and tell everyone to go away?
A failed unschooler. A tired homeschooler.
I think I'll read some unschooling blogs.
I think I'll pray.
I think I'll eat some ice cream and catch a movie with my husband.
I think I'll smile and enjoy my children and our lives.
