I love this quote...
I don't want my special needs homeschoolers feeling "less than" because academics are hard for them. I don't want any of my children ever feeling "less than" because something is difficult. I need to make sure the feedback I am giving is positive. I need to make sure I am helping them with their journey.
I will be carrying that quote in my mind with me through these little years, through these homeschool years. Everyone is on their own journey. For their journey I am merely the current guide. For my own journey, I am the captain.
And so, I have a little journey news of my own....my journey is leading me to apply for graduate school again. While I love being a speech language pathologist, I have been doing speech therapy for 17 years and feel the need to make a change. So, my journey has led me to apply for graduate school again, with the goal this time being to earn my MA in History. I should find out in the next few weeks if my application was accepted, so wish me luck! If accepted, I will start this fall.
People need the freedom to grow...to change...to try new things and to become the best version of themselves. I feel so fortunate to have a husband and a family who are supportive of this new endeavor and know me well enough to know that I am at my happiest when I am learning. I don't want fear or fatigue to keep me from this journey, so I am rolling up my sleeves and making it happen.
Where is your journey taking you this year? Where are you taking your little homeschoolers?
Blessings to you!
