15 Inspirations Quotes to Encourage the Homeschool Mom

We are well into our homeschool year already.  Since it’s our first year and it’s just Kindergarten, most of it has been pretty fun and exciting for all of us.  Lots of crafting, coloring, games, adventures.  It’s so nice that we can create our own schedule and let school fall where and how it works for us.  The flexibility is probably one of my top 10 reasons for homeschooling.  The week that most kids went back to school, we were out on a family vacation  😛

I have been adding things here and there to my Homeschool Mom Planner.  This year, I’ve treated myself to a Happy Planner and even started getting into all the fun stickers and paraphernalia.  I’ve found one of my favorite parts of homeschooling is all the fun planning.  It gets me so excited and helps my crazy scattered brain remember what path I’m supposed to travel down and when.

Because we just started, I’m sure I’m still in the honeymoon phase…or does it always stay this exciting?

I’m sure there will be some days I may be thinking…..why don’t I just send my kids to school everyday, am I crazy for homeschooling?!  On those days, when I need a bit of a reminder, I made this printable to keep me grounded and encouraged 🙂
