To whom it may concern,
Homeschooling five children and keeping a house clean is not doable. A dog in heat is not fun and makes for a crabby mommy who is chasing a dog and a four year old who wants to take off the dogs diaper. Fractions should be made illegal. I hate spelling.
Hi I'm Autumn and I have home school burn out. Life gets in the way of my perfect home school day and when we get behind I start worrying that I'm failing my kids. And then that big yellow bus pulls up and picks up the neighbors children and I wonder, am I doing the right thing?
Many days I see the fruit of my labor, kids that help each other and help their momma because I can't do it all. School goes well, my struggling reader finishes a book all by herself, the four year old plays quietly, and we make memories. But then there are days like this...
It's rainy, chilly, dog's in heat, kids can't focus, mom can't focus, the house is a wreck, and I can't do sixth grade math let alone explain it to my child!!! I want to throw in the towel. I want to give up. But then I remember God never calls us to do things that He won't help us through. He called me to teach my children. He will gently lead us if I will let him. His yoke is easy and burden light.
So, I give up, I give up my life to my Lord and follow His call.
