You’ve made the big decisions and the kids have been pulled from school. The curriculum has been purchased and you’re weeks away from your first go at homeschooling.
This is where things get real.
Now feels like the perfect time for a freak-out, right?
Believe me, it doesn’t have to be.
I did the freaking out a few weeks before we started kindergarten and even again before we started first grade (we were having a baby in a matter of DAYS!), but I’m walking into second grade in a much more settled place, confident we’ve got this as a family.
And even if we don’t, I know we will soon.
I’d love to extend a bit of that confidence to you.
What follows is my best advice for first time homeschoolers to help take a bit of the edge off in those final days before your first school year at home.
