I’ve written this column Monday thru Friday for the past four months. Today I’m on the road traveling from Eastern Tennessee back to Kansas City. That gives me 832 miles to think of something to write.
And for the first time I’ve come up empty-headed and empty-handed. Maybe it’s the beginning of a long thoughtless streak. Chances are however, it’s a one-day phenomenon. So what do you say when you can’t think of anything to say?
What does this have to do with homeschooling?
There are days when we don’t have a brilliant teaching plan or an inspired mind of Godly wisdom to impart to our children. And it’s okay to admit that. In fact, sometimes it’s the best thing you can do; admitting that you’re human just like your children and that every day isn’t always filled with enthusiasm, ambition and inspiration.
Ask your children what THEY want to learn about today. You’ll be surprised at what they have to share. You MAY discover that some of the very best days are the days when your children suggest something they’d like to learn more about and TOGETHER you go on a learning journey.
