ChristyB in TN Posted September 4, 2012 Share Posted September 4, 2012 As you may know because I yammer on and on about it here, my husband and I own a company together. We work a bajillion hours a week, 7 days a week and homeschool our 13 year old son at the office. I have found that I am not doing anything well. I don't feel that I am giving my son the best education I can provide and it means so much to me to be able to give this to him. He had homeschooled until 3rd grade, attended a private school for a couple of years, a public school for a month, and then another private school for a couple of years. I want to teach him to love learning again and I want to be able to dive into the subjects, maybe meshing classical and unschooling as much as possible? We have done okay so far but not great. This weekend, our older two kids came home from college and we talked about the craziness that is our household. My house is a wreck, my car smells bad, we eat out A LOT, I cringe every time my phone rings because I know it is work and that I have to answer it. So...I am finishing out this week and I am home. I am keeping my license and my title will now be, 'Owner, agent, director of public relations and fun.' We invite the community in for yoga and classes at our office...I'm still in charge of that! Anyway, I'm excited and a little sad. I love my job but I need to get a grip on the this home schooling thing and my HOUSE for a little while. I can't wait to cook, clean, paint some walls, clean the stink out of my car, dive headfirst into our Wheelock's book, relearn some algebra as I teach it, read all the books, learn about the Ancients again, write, look my sweet son in the eyes and not be distracted by the phone.
