Dear Homeschool Mom,
Most of us are getting our children ready to start a new school year. Some of us are old hands, and others are brand-new homeschool moms. But no matter how long you have been homeschooling, a little encouragement from other homeschool moms is a wonderful gift.
A Recap Of The Wonderful Topics Covered Earlier This Week
We have read the blog posts of many, many wise, and wonderful homeschooling moms throughout the week.
On Monday, we learned about a huge variety of curriculum choices from moms who represent nearly every method of education. We have moms who use Charlotte Mason methods and moms who homeschool classically, and those who are eclectic homeschoolers, and everything in between. You can go back and read through all the various options and maybe find a curriculum that would be perfect for your children.
On Tuesday, we read through various perspectives on essential school supplies that will make your homeschooling year flow better. Where do you find the deals? What are great supplies to have on hand throughout the year? Are there memberships that give you discounts?
On Wednesday, we listened in on homeschooling moms discuss various methods of planning and recordkeeping. This can seem like the hardest part of homeschooling, but if you read through the advice from these moms, you will discover that it really isn’t difficult to plan and keep your records in order and still have a wonderful time homeschooling your children.
And finally, on Thursday, we read about a huge variety of options for learning outside the home because, after all, homeschoolers rarely just stay at home to school.
Today Our Moms Wrote Letters, Just For You!
And now we come to the last day in our series: encouragement. At the end of this post, you will find a collection of links that take you to the blog posts of these wonderful homeschooling moms who wrote ‘Dear Homeschool Mom’ letters especially for you.
We all can use encouragement. It gives us the courage to make our children`s future choices with confidence and a mindful ear to God’s Word. It helps us to pick ourselves up and continue after a hard day. And encouragement from moms in the homeschooling community can be exactly the nudge you need to take the path that will best nurture and raise your children to become the wonderfully strong and creative, and purposeful adults you hope they will become.
