If I had only known…

This is day 4 of The Back to Homeschool Week.

If I had only known… 

…that I don’t have to follow the book. It’s okay to customize.

…that I don’t have to buy everything.

…not to bite off more than I can chew. I am an all-or-nothing person, so I tend to get in over my head. A LOT.

…to pace myself. This hearkens back to the last point.

…what the real point is. (Hint: it’s NOT academics!)

…how much fun it was going to be! Being able to reason with your kids, seeing them “get it” is way more fun than the few hours of free time when they would be at school.
