What do we homeschool mamas want? One word: encouragement.
Nothing like a homeschool conference with seasoned homeschool mamas infusing me with encouraging thoughts. This conference was a fourteen hour energy drink to reawaken my system. Two days of conference speakers engaging new ideas for studies and discovering better ways to approach my children and my approach to the homeschool lifestyle.
Homeschool conferences: energizing, clarifying, streamlining, simplifying my homeschool intentions.
I was reminded that homeschooling can be a thankless, tiring, exhausting, demanding job. Yet without gratitude, the show must go on. And the hard work is worth the effort.
I was reminded that our homeschooling vision begins with knowing who we are and what our family is focussed. The subsequent goals for our children’s education will materialize based on that vision.
Are we a musical family? Are we an academic family? Are we an encouraging family? Are we a service family?
I can encourage my children in their interests, in discovering their curiosities, in being kind, and encouraging my children to become the people they were born into the world to become.
As a homeschool mama, I also know all homeschool mamas need a little encouragement, so I endeavour to do that with my homeschool mama self-care book, through my weekly InstaVideos, and these posts.
Much love to you and your family!

to be what we know we could be”
