Homeschooling is what I call good – hard work.
To help keep me going, I started looking for reasons, little reasons, to remind myself why I continue to home school. These reasons hit me sometimes quite out of the blue — or sometimes, like Reason #1 — it can come to me early in the morning.
Today’s reason came in an instant. It was a shared victory moment when the light bulb went off in my 2nd grader’s head — she sounded out a word she had never seen before in a book I was reading. She recognized the letters and took her time and struggled – all on her own intent.
This light bulb moment wasn’t that she could sound out letters, but that she could actually read words that were in mommy’s ‘big girl book’. Witnessing that moment was so rewarding—because it was in that moment I witnessed my baby girl realize she can do anything!

Until next time,
