I have to admit- I am a bit of a curriculum junkie. There’s just something about choosing a program, figuring out how it works, and planning it out that is cathartic for me. However, sometimes the best laid plans are just that- plans. And that’s OK.
I’m a planner. There’s just something about making plans and checking boxes that really gets me going. I also love to teach, to see those lightbulbs go off when a curiosity is satisfied. Trouble is, when you are homeschooling multiple kids, things don’t always, or often, go as planned. Even with the best intentions, we can squash our children’s natural learning potential in favor of completing a curriculum or following a standard.
