Welcome! Today we begin our new homeschool year. While last year's first day filled me with an adrenaline filled sense of panic (being it was my first year), this year's first day has me filled with excitement and anticipation. This year I am excited about the POSSIBILITIES. Like any other first day of school, a new year is a clean slate....a chance to make things better wrapped up in a feeling of "anything is possible". This is especially true when your homeschool includes children with special needs.
I find myself so excited about what this new school year can bring for Sean and Timothy in the areas of independence, reading, and their overall knowledge of the world. I have set specific goals for them, broke them down into smaller steps and now am excited to see how far we can go on these....working together.
My wish for you as you start your own new homeschool year is this: set goals, work together, laugh together, enjoy the journey, remember that you never get these little years back, patience-patience-patience, Rome was not built in a day, never underestimate the value of reading your kids a good book and may you turn every day of this homeschool journey into your own wonderland...and if you need some inspiration, remember that if there is a child in your home, then someone's childhood is happening in your home, and that makes your home (and your homeschool) a pretty magical place!
