on being a scaredy cat…

As confident as I try to be about our decision to homeschool, I have a few reservations.  One of my biggest fears is that I won’t be organized or committed enough to give schooling the attention it needs.  This fear was heightened this last week with my serious lack of time put in on our desert unit.

Now, it’s summer, and it’s not a big deal if we stay “on schedule” or not.  But the point is, I had all of this stuff planned out.  And it wasn’t that I just generally slacked off- I really did try.  It wasn’t even that much, but we didn’t manage to get hardly any of it done.  It’s making me really paranoid that when the actual school year starts, I’ll be shocked at the time needed and that I won’t be able to get it done.

Keep your fingers crossed and pray for us!

    Boy does that hit close to home for me right now. Next fall will be our first full year since we started in April and we took it pretty easy up until now. Basically just finishing the end-of-year stuff. My fear is that there just won’t be enough time to complete everything that I’ve planned for without going for 8 or 10 hours a day. One benefit to our homeschooling was to keep education stress free and enjoyable. I hope I can pull that off next year! I’ll keep praying for your success if you pray for ours 😉

    Thanks for the comment! That’s how I feel too… part of the reason we’re doing this is so that we can do school in hopefully half a day or less. Now I’m paranoid that it’ll be so much worse! I will definitely pray for you guys too.
