Welp, it’s that time again. Time for another school year. I watch some of the social media posts of my friends who send their kids to school, and their posts are all about how happy they are to finally be getting back on a schedule, nice to have the kids out of the house so they can impart some order, etc. Hmph. Having always homeschooled, I’ve never experienced this phenomena of having a time when I have a stretch of time with no kids in the house so I have time to get things organized or under control. Probably why my home has never been under control. But that’s ok! When I’m on my deathbed at some future point, hopefully I will look back on all of the good that homeschooling did instead of remembering that my house was never organized.
But back to the point of this post (did you forget also?). I’ve been telling the kids we are starting school tomorrow, and you’d think that now that I’m entering my 19th year of homeschooling and only have 2 kids left to homeschool, I’d be a little bit more organized.
I still haven’t really done anything except browse around to a few websites. And, remember, we’re starting tomorrow. Yes, the day after today, meaning that if I have to buy any books, they aren’t going to be here in time. I guess I will have to use whatever I can find in my basement, but my bookshelf is totally unorganized because I’ve been dealing with fleas for the past month or so (more on that on a different blog post). So the chances of my finding anything worthwhile to use on my bookshelf is pretty slim. Ho hum. Well, they don’t call me the Imperfect Homeschooler for nothing!
So the point of this blog post is to show you that yes, you can homeschool, even if you are as unorganized and pathetic as I am. Because I’m doing it. And my kids are great. And yours will be too.
