You have probably heard the saying a thousand times, life, parenting, homeschooling is not a sprint - it's a marathon.
But it wasn't until I started running that I truly understood the difference between these two. It's not just the length - it's about your attitude, your mental and physical conditioning, and your fixation on a goal that help you to keep going through the long run.
And the same is true with homeschooling. This month, I want to encourage you to keep going!
There are bound to be moments when you feel like you can't make it . . . but keep going. Keep placing one foot in front of the other. Keep doing one day after another. Be present. Be teachable. And be consistent.
And I know that the sum total of your efforts will be worth it in the end.
