following my heart
Our homeschooling days are always a work in progress. We're human and we're always changing and learning something new about ourselves. We recently made a change and I instantly felt the relief. It's funny how I can get so hell bent on one idea. Then my heart/head shifts and I can see how sticking it out until the end, just to finish something, isn't always the best thing. I have this idea in my head sometimes that if I quit something then I'm a quitter. Well, maybe I am but sometimes quitting is a good thing.
This new change has made it possible for us to enjoy our days, find our creativity again and relax a bit into a happy learning environment.
Solomon can sit on the couch and listen to books on CD. Amelia and I can make apple butter on a weekday. And then there are Legos all day long sometimes.
