We Are Finished!!!

I am now officially able to say that I am not a newbie at homeschooling anymore :). It seems like yesterday that we spent our first day schooling, and now we have made it through the school year. I feel good about what my children have learned and especially about the time that we have spent together this year....quality time. Without a doubt, I know my children better than I have in a long time. I know what motivates them to learn and what method of teaching each of them responds to the best. I know which subjects they love and why. I know which subjects they don't like and how to get them through those. I have experienced the excitement in their eyes when they learn new things and have been there to comfort them when they felt defeated. Yes, there have been days when I felt defeated too. Thank God for Jeff who has been there for me like a rock through this year. He has encouraged me by being there when I needed him and for praising me constantly for what I am doing. He thanks me for teaching his children and has trust in me to give them what they need. He will never know what this means to me. I am encouraged simply by the fact that he wants me to teach his children...what a wonderful responsibility he has entrusted me with.
I have a lot of decisions to make and planning to do for the next school year. I have ideas about what I want to do for most subjects, but need to make some final decisions and order what I need. I pray that I make the right choices so that next year can be productive and, most of all, fun! Now.....time to enjoy our SUMMER BREAK!!!!!!!!
