Are you like me? Did you think your season as a teacher would end by 7th grade when you’d turn homeschooling over to ‘the experts’?
Unbelievably, you wrapped up 6th grade with a sense of, “What we are doing doesn’t seem to be broken, so why fix it [by sending kids to traditional school]?”
Now here you are with a sense of awe, wonder, and a little panic thrown into the mix because you made it.
YOU. MADE. IT!!! Oh! MY!

Who in the world did you think you were — thinking you could get your kid across the graduation stage, diploma in hand?
