As in finished, completed, over, achieved, concluded, executed, finale, terminated or however else you would like to say it. (see, I learned something this year too!)
Although we had a good year, I am glad to be finished.
So are the boys. Want to see?
Seth had to be a bit of a shyster, of course.
However, I think the joy really radiates off of Tate and Wyat. No guessing how they feel about school being over.
In fact, Tate looks a little maniacal. Maybe I pushed him a little too hard at the end?
We celebrated by going out to eat that night as a family. We went up to Pickerel for a fish fry at the Hill Stop. I made sure to tell my boys how proud I was of all the hard work they had done that year. Wanted to end things on a good note you know.
Maybe then they would kind of forget what a crazy mother they sometimes have.
Overall, I love home schooling my boys. I love being with them and sharing a love of learning with them. I love being the one who teaches them a new concept. I love being the one who gets to see the light bulb come on after working hard at understanding something new. I love to get hugs from my oldest son all day long. I love hearing them laugh in the middle of the day, even when they are supposed to be quiet. I love to see their excitement.
Yeah, there are bad moments. Yeah, I lose my patience (probably too much). Yeah, it can be hard.
But none of those things override the good things.
