Reading and Writing and Crying

Today was the first day of school. I had such high hopes! After all, this is my fourth year as a homeschool mom, and while I’m the first to admit I don’t have all the answers, I was feeling especially confident this year. At the very least I knew what to expect. Or so I thought.

By 9 am Amy was already holed up in her room, crying that I just don’t understand how she wants to do school. Boy, does she have that right.

So the first day has come and gone. Amy did eventually get her act together and we enjoyed the afternoon together.

My confidence is up to the normal-but-cautious level and I think I’m ready to try it again tomorrow. I just hope we can make it to lunch before anyone’s in tears.
