I was homeschooled off and on growing up as a military kid and honestly loved every minute of it, and I dreamed of homeschooling my children. Then I did… And it wasn’t feeling like the ideal thing I wanted it to be.
You see, I have 4 kids who are at the moment 7, 6, 4, and almost 2. There is chaos involved in everything we do, and most of the time I love it. But I was struggling in what the chaos did to our homeschooling. As soon as I heard about the idea of morning time my heart connected with it.
I just knew this was something I wanted to do. We’re still finding our rhythm (the biggest struggle is me forcing myself to pace all my dreams and goals in light of my crew’s ages), but the connection we’ve formed but memorizing Scripture and hymns and savoring read alouds has as a local friend of mine who also discovered morning time put it “breathed new life into our homeschool day.”
