Last week my friend posted on her blog the difficulties of keeping things clean while you are home schooling. She even posted a picture of her messy counter and asked us to do the same. We are blessed to have an extra bedroom in our house that we use as a school room. Everything is organized and labeled. I even have a chalk board. Here is a picture of the room
My friend's post reminded me of a speaker I heard at the Cincinnati home school convention last spring. I enjoyed her session so much I bought her book. Susan Kemmerer wrote Homeschool Supermom... NOT! On the first page she shows a picture of her kitchen counter which looks very similar to mine. It is a great read. She shares real stories of her life as she home schools her 9 children. She connects Scripture with what is going on in her life and how she has learned from it. It is a good reminder for me that homeschooling really isn't all about my kids but also what God is trying to change in me while I train my children. So maybe some day I will be honest enough to post pictures of the kitchen or even worse my bedroom! Until then I will continue on this journey to which God has called me.
