Riding the Roller Coaster

The emotional life of a homeschool mom goes steeply up and down. One day I love it! I blog and brag about my children , and talk about how well they are doing. But the next day I fall apart. I feel overwhelmed by my children's learning needs. I ask myself: "Can I do this another year?" Then I remember, it's almost March. It's almost over. Do all teachers everywhere, in all schools, feel the same way?? Is this normal?? I guess it's like a job somedays we like our job other days we hate it. A friend told me once, "When the roller-coaster is "down" it also means it's on the way back up." I am trying to remember that as I scream on the way down.

You are doing a wonderful job! Your family is so blessed. You inspire me. Keep up the good work.
P.S. Yes, having a 'job' is the same way... a total love/hate relationship. hehe. Take Care sweetie.
