Have you ever felt like giving up? No? Then I won't tell you that we are STILL trying to finish up some math before it is time to dive into the new school year.
Our math curriculum for the new school year arrived just yesterday and I felt a little defeated that it is nearly August and we are STILL chugging along on work from the last school year.
It turns out moving across the state in October with seven children takes a toll on daily schedules. Plus, there's the whole Never Been Involved in a Homeschool Group Before, So She Signs Up For Every Activity Under the Sun syndrome that kept us going to too many field trips and doing too little actual school work. Which we have been paying for all summer.
That's why I was so glad I came across this article today:
"What Keeps You Going When You Want to Quit?"
Now, excuse me while I go read it fourteen more times.
And then make a list.
And then do some math.
