The amount of school days will vary according to your state's requirements. We are required to have 180 school days with the private school covering we are under. I tried to have our school schedule run about the same time as the local private school. That way when the school children were out my children were out. I just avoided a lot of questions from people that were curious about us. Some years it is impossible to keep the same days as the public or private school. Depending on the life circumstances you are experiencing. For example, this past year our family suffered a terrible tragedy. It put our family behind six weeks of school. As a homeschooling family you will experience life events that will alter your school schedule, that's okay. You have to remember homeschooling is a lifestyle. School days and schedules will be altered by life events, that's alright. The blessing of homeschooling is you can catch up, and you will catch up. It's great if you are ahead when these things happen, so then you can pull on that reserve. When we start a school year I always hit the school days pretty hard. I usually try to have the children do double lessons in their school books when possible. Most curriculum is designed in a way that the first quarter of the book is review or concepts that have been previously taught. If my children know the lesson or concept, I would go ahead to the next one. This way if something does happen during the school year I have a reserve to pull on, we are ahead. Believe me there will be days that your school schedule will be altered for life events. You have to remember, you are not limited by any other schedule except your own life schedule. You can catch up in the evening, or on the weekend, or on a typical public school holiday. Because we ran our school schedule along with the local schools, the children would know when a holiday or teacher work day was coming up. If we were not where we were suppose to be in their lessons, I would just tell them, no we are not taking a day off. Then we would have school. You have to remember, your children are getting a world of experience that school children are not getting exposed to. They have 24 hours/7days a week to live life and experience real life events. That in itself is an education that is very valuable. See the value, I have and now I see the fruit. It is a lifestyle well worth living!
The Importance of the Generations
As I sit here pondering my day yesterday, I have come to the realization just how important the generations are to each other. I spent the day with my friend who is about 10 years my junior and her mom who is about 10 years my senior. After my heart felt pouring out of emotions they began to speak into my life.
I forgot how much an older ladies life experiences can impact my life. She shared several life experiences with me that really touched my heart and had application in my life as to where I am right now. My younger friend's wisdom equally important and impactful.
As homeschool moms and many of you mothers of many, I want to encourage you to reach out to older women. There is so much life experience they have to offer you. The experience of living life and raising a family is invaluable to us as moms and women.
As I walked away from that face to face time with them yesterday, I gleaned several life changing principles that were applicable to where I am walking right now. Sometimes you don't realize how much of a need there is within you to receive wisdom from others until you hear it.
The position your children hold in your family is significant. I have heard it called the birth order. It's true, they are in an order that will teach them life skills for their adulthood. Take the first born for instance, take charge, motivated, confident, and many
other character traits that they will use later in life. How about your second child. Usually strong willed, very smart, perfectionist and other qualities. None of these are traits that are in themselves bad or good, just similiar to others that have been born in that place. I suppose what I am trying to say is, the life experiences your children are subject to, help them later in life.
As a mom, it is hard to see our children go through certain hard life events, but I have found that when certain life events happen to them as children they pull on that experience as an adult. Sometimes as a mom I don't want to see or want to allow hurtful events in my child's life. To a certain extent we need to allow it. As moms we can see that certain choices a child makes is not going to be a wise choice and carries a consequence.
What do you do? For instance, it is cold outside and you are headed to an event. You tell your children bring your jacket it's cold outside. They choose not to. What is your reaction? Do you allow them to make that choice and reap the consequences? Do you make them get a jacket?
Sometimes it is wise to allow them to make an unwise choice so they can learn. They will learn two things:
(1)Actions do have consequences.
(2)Listen to mom, she is wise.
I have allowed my children over the years to make choices that I knew would cause them consequences. It is hard to watch them suffer the consequences. Not only that, it is hard on the family when you have an unhappy child grumbling because they are
I would much rather allow that to happen in a loving family environment, then to see it later in their life, when people are not so loving and supportive.
