Persevere with Laughter

persevere in homeschooling

My favorite nuggets of advice when we began the homeschooling journey were:

“You know your weaknesses, so pray.”


“If you’re not having fun, you’re doing it wrong.”

I’ve relied on those treasures of wisdom for thirteen years now!  There were a few years where I modified the second one to “If I’m not having fun, we’re doing something wrong.”  Your home may be different than ours, but our reality has been that sometimes the kids do not look at homeschooling as anything more than drudgery.  I still believe the love of learning that often launches we parents into homeschooling will be ‘caught’ by our children—but there are definitely days they will not have that love!
