I think this post is comforting and has some common sense advice on homeschooling multiple children. I know a few of you out there facing this challenge! And I agree that much of the challenge is what life presents rather than homeschooling per se and managing life is a good lesson in itself! I wish I could pass on a calmer way of doing that. It’s something I work on everyday. But at least I work on it

I will never forget one of the stories of my husband’s great-grandparents. They were celebrating their seventy-fifth wedding anniversary and people at church asked great-grandma to stand up and say a few words about having a successful marriage. She stood up, and probably to the chagrin of most of the people there wanting inspirational words, said, “Well, it hasn’t been easy!” and sat back down again.
