The craziness of the unperfect homeschooler

wow ... that describes me to a T. We have been homeschooling for around 1.2 years. We started when Isaac was 4. He is now kindergarten and Lucas is 3 year preschool. I had things scheduled how things would flow, details are my friend and my enemy! Well we are in our 3rd week of homeschooling and have missed a total of 3 days. He is still ahead of public school kindergarten. But like today I had bible study took the boys with me and let my hubby sleep. My sister in law and 3 kids and hubby have to be out of their house by the end of the month, so i was ready to head over there for a couple hours to help pack. Well , we didn't have to. But , i had to clean the bathroom , bedroom, kitchen, and liviing room , i didn't even get to my room yet. There is so much to do on a day off.. they def. should never call them days off. Espically if you are a homeschooling mother wife and every other role we as women have in our lives. My sister in law will be moving in with us. The house is busting at the seems... I love her , her husband and her wonderful 3 children. I do , I still need some prayers. So back to the homeschooling imperfection. I had this WHOLE plan on how everything would work out. I got the worksheets , art supplies, science things that look great....We say our pledges to the flag, the bible and the christian flag...we got our letters and their sounds, we got our addition and subtraction....yeah it looks great in my mind and on paper calanders. Now when you get to the nitty gritty of it I have an overactive 5 year old and a monkey for a 3 year old. We go to the school room and work for o ,15 minutes and then they want break, can we have cookies, hey momma are we done yet...can we just do math. I pray for my sanity every day. I my friends am reluctant to admit. I am an unperfect homeschooler, but i will continue to teach my children at home. I never have to worry what they are learning , i never have to find out they are learning something at school that disagrees with our all mighty savior God. I will be there for them they are right where they belong at home with their momma. I will be posting pictures of a day in the life of an unperfect homeschooler.
God bless til next time
