Krista in LA Posted July 4, 2008 Share Posted July 4, 2008 I'm not talking about the typical "I'm tired of doing this and sure could use a break" type feeling. Usually, by this time of the summer, I'm pumped up about the upcoming school year - I've not just placed orders, but have the stuff in hand and most of it planned. Some years we were even starting school right after the 4th of July. This year, I've been putting it off. I didn't want to figure out what to use, buy it, and then plan it all out. I finally decided that I had to get my order in to Rainbow yesterday and there was none of the usual excitement for me. After placing the order, all I could think about was that I really didn't want to homeschool anymore. I'm tired of the responsibility. I'm tired of it taking over my whole life and house. I love being with my children, but I don't want to teach them anymore. The passion is gone. If my kids came to me and said they wanted to go to school, I would probably be jumping for joy except for the fact that I would miss them. Of course then the reality would hit that ds probably would have a hard time at school and I really need to work on his writing skills with him before he could go. So has anyone felt like this and gotten through it or should I start preparing my kids to go to school? I have 12dd signed up for Classical Conversations, so I'm hoping that will help with her. I'm almost contemplating on just focusing on the really important stuff with 10ds so if school is in his future, he'll be better prepared for it. :001_unsure: Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
