So I’ve been feeling panicky and overwhelmed at the thought of teaching my lad this year. I’m not feeling very organized or planned out or anything.
Hubby dear gave me the idea of planning our next day for 15-20 minutes the night before and I think I’ll be doing that. I’ve been a bit concerned about doing TOO Much planning as I know what I’m like what I get a list I just feel “argh” if I don’t complete everything on it and I can get snippy and snappy and I do not wish to be like that.
Therefore I went to the ministry of education (Ontario) tonight to see just what they expect children to learn in grade one. And though a few things leave me wondering HOW will I teach that? Overall it was like okay….he knows that already, this we already do and he’ll get better at, and OH>>> I can teach that! It overall left me with a feeling of relief. Overtime I will be able to plan out better what we do. EVEN IF at times it is haphazard it will work out in the long run I think.
I am feeling a bit more settled again…knowing that I can teach my son, but I do need to be a bit more organized about how I go about doing it. AS LONG AS…. I remember that we are FIRST a family, and second a homeschooling one. Homeschooling will continue to fit around our need to be a family first, and one that honours God while doing so.
