Lacking Confidence...

I started a post about how I am feeling unsure about our homeschooling decision this month.  I had things to say about whining, and tears, and chaos.  Of course as always happens I had to stop writing, and then forgot to come back to it it right away.  In the meantime I read some other blogs, and also as usual, they gave me perspective on my own journey.  This one in particular resonated with me today.

It was actually written as a Homeschooing 101 for non-homeschoolers, but it served as a nice reminder.  It's nice  to see that our struggles are not unique to our family.  Some times I need to be hit upside the head to remember that even though homeschooling can be a messy, upsetting, emotional journey it is still the right choice for us.
