Providing a smooth and peaceful homeschool experience for our families is an ideal for many of us. Whether you are the ultra-organized mom with color-coded file folders or the “let’s read together at our favorite park” style of educator, we are all in search of our ideal.
In my mind’s eye, I can envision a particularly lovely ideal. I rise early enough to have my daily devotion, throw in a load of laundry, and spruce up the kitchen before stirring in the last ingredient of my morning pumpkin loaf. My children joyfully greet me, and off they go to get ready for the neat and tidy lessons I have prepared for them. To me, that sounds wonderful, like a ship sailing through the glassy waters — non-turbulent.
