Adventure. An undertaking usually involving danger and unknown risks, an exciting or remarkable experience, an enterprise involving financial risk.
As we continue in the ABCs of Homeschool Encouragement Series, today we are talking about ADVENTURE. If you ask me, the definitions above describe homeschooling perfectly. Danger. Unknown. Financial risk. I think my husband would definitely agree to that last one.
I’ve said this before; homeschooling is not for the faint of heart. In my opinion, you ought to be either extremely courageous or extremely naive to jump into such a venture.
Which of these best describes you? I wish I could tell you I was the brave adventure seeker, however, I was the latter.
Homeschooling has taught me more about myself than years of formal schooling and college taught me. I’m grateful for my lack of knowing just how involved and challenging this adventure would be, I honestly don’t know if I’d had taken the leap.
If we all did the things we are capable of doing, we would literally astound ourselves.
Thomas Alva Edison
Regardless of how and why you began homeschooling, it’s important to remember that every day is an adventure. No one day will be like the other, and no one child will learn, react or behave like the rest.
An adventure is only an inconvenience rightly considered. An inconvenience is only an adventure wrongly considered.” – G. K. Chesterton
To the momma that is considering going on this adventure or feels discouraged by the bump on the road, I say stick around for a bit, we want to encourage you and assure you that you are not alone. This thing you’re doing will change the relationships you have with your children and you will be blessed beyond measure.
Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD,
The fruit of the womb a reward.
