Can you relate?
You wake up in the morning, exhausted before one foot even hits the floor.
You struggle to find motivation to begin the school day, choosing instead to pour another cup of coffee, telling yourself you’ll start on time tomorrow.
You spend your days attempting to fit it all in: math and reading lessons, cooking and cleaning, soccer practice and piano lessons. All while hunting down the toddler and missing Sharpie, praying that you won’t find them together.
You lie awake at night and wonder how you can ever be good enough when you are exhausted and frustrated all day. You think maybe you should just give up.
I understand how you feel because I’ve been there too. Homeschooling your children is hard work. But it doesn’t have to be overwhelming.
I believe that you can simplify your homeschool day so that it’s manageable and enjoyable.

Hi! I'm Christy.
When we started homeschooling, I envisioned peaceful days watching my children work quietly as I tended to household duties. Unfortunately, that dream bubble burst our first week! Day after day, dishes piled up as I sprinted from child to child, from fractions to spelling words.
As soon as we found a good routine, along came a baby and then a move to a new house. I was overwhelmed, struggling to find the motivation to begin each homeschool day and crashing from exhaustion each evening. I constantly worried: Am I a good enough teacher for them?
Not one to give up, I read everything I could about homeschooling and talked to veteran homeschool moms. Eventually, I let go of my preconceived notion of the perfect homeschool, realizing that it doesn’t exist. I accepted that good enough is truly good enough, which may look like unfolded laundry and school days that are anything but quiet.
We’ve settled into a routine that works for our family, one which is flexible enough to grow with us. Now, I walk into each homeschool day confident that my children are learning and growing, even on those bad days that seep in from time to time. I know that I am indeed a good enough teacher for my kids.
