I created a bucket list a few years. Things I want to do before I (literally) kick the bucket. I have put it aside, since are pricey (going to Japan); some are risky (sky diving) and some I had just forgotten all about.
It wasn't until we set down this homeschooling path that a friend reminded me of that item on my list: teaching.
I'm as terrified as I would have been if I was going into a school to teach. These are my kids, we can drive one another insane on occasion and now we get to spend more time with one another and learn together.
But no one knows them better than I, no one understands them better so I'm confident we will adjust and move forward in this journey and be glad we took it.
I'm also excited I'm starting to cross things off the list before the proverbial 40 runs around!
