Homeschool Mother's Journal

I can hardly believe it, but we are over halfway through our homeschool year! And even better, we are pretty much on track to complete everything, too. Now that is something to celebrate!

This is a great reminder to me that big goals are accomplished by many little steps. It’s the consistent daily steps–no matter how small or insignificant they may seem–that actually get us to the goal.

What achievements are you celebrating this week? I’d love to hear about them!
