Diving Into Homeschool

Diving Into Homeschool Let me start by saying, I am not blessed with the patience required to be a teacher.  It’s just not in me in any way, shape, or form.  Those who know me personally, know this to be absolute truth.

Schedules

Fact: I am not good at scheduling myself. It’s like a madhouse around here.  One week into school and we never know who is coming or going or where anyone is at.  It’s making me crazy–like on the verge of schizo.
