Do I really want to do this????????

Ok, here is a confession. As the new school year approaches and all of my nieces and nephews go school shopping and start talking to my kids about how excited they are to go back to school, etc, and my kids begin asking questions like, why dont we go to school sometimes? I ask myself, do i really want to do this?? This will officially be our 8th year homeschooling, because I started at birth with my children. While I see all the amazings pluses, like how spiritual they are, and how smart they are etc. I just wonder, am I up to this for another year???? We are struggling with money, this would be the first year that all three of my babies would be in school, my youngest is starting kindergarten, i could get a job while they are in school, etc. Am I up to this?? In my heart I know it is right. I know that what Im doing is important. My only job, right now, is to be the best momma I can be, and a good wife and daughter of God. But I admit, Im not as pumped about this school year as I usually am. I think that being with my kids 24/7 is getting to me. Maybe I need a break. A little momma time. Or a bubble bath without interruptions, lol. Am I the only one who feels this way????? I will homeschool my kids, I will teach them the gospel, we will sing the hymns, we will do math lessons, I will snuggle my babies and know Im doing whats right, but do I really want to do this???????? ?any comments?Jaellejaelleerica@ yahoo.com

I totally get how you're feeling. I've had many days where I don't think I can keep homeschooling, but I keep doing it because it's what Lane needs. We take it easy on the actual school work for that day and read or do fun science experiments. If Lane ever asked to go back to public school I'd be willing to give it a try. If it doesn't work I could always pull him out again.
