Hi! I’m Wendy, and I’m an unorganized scatterbrain. There, I said it. But I have good news! I’m unorganized and homeschooling! As a matter of fact, this is my 20th year of homeschooling, I have two homeschool graduates and am currently homeschooling my youngest child, and I am evidence that even imperfect moms (very imperfect!) can homeschool and be successful at it.
No matter where you are on your homeschool journey–whether you’re brand new or have homeschooled for years–I want to remind you that you can do this! Honestly. In fact, let’s do it together!
But I need to be honest with you. No matter how many years you homeschool, you’ll never have a perfect homeschool year. Every single year will be different. Every year will have its challenges and rewards. After all, this is real life!
My house isn’t always clean. I don’t always have dinner ready when my husband gets home from work. My kids don’t always say the right things or behave nicely in front of others. But guess what? I’m a real person just like you! I’m imperfect. I get tired. I forget to be thankful for my blessings. I fuss too much at my children. I don’t always set a good example. But each day, each month, each new year is a chance to start over. To pick up where we left off and begin again.
So don’t worry if your homeschool is a little disorganized and chaotic. Don’t worry if you don’t get everything done every day. Don’t feel like you have to be perfect, your house has to be spotless, and dinner always has to be cooked from scratch and ready on time. It will be ok. You CAN be unorganized and homeschooling at the same time.
I’m here for you. All of us here at Hip Homeschool Moms are here for you. We want to inspire you, challenge you, support you, share information with you, and help you be the best mom, wife, teacher, and person that you can be. We want to be a place you can come for advice, information, answers, and support. I’m not perfect. We’re not perfect. But I’ve learned over my 20 years of homeschooling that perfection isn’t really what we need. Love, support, determination, and hard work are what we need to succeed.
So as you live this homeschool lifestyle, we want to hear from you. We want to be here for you. We want to know what you need and how we can help you.
What do you want to learn more about? What kinds of resources do you need? Are there questions we can help you answer? Please leave your comments, questions, and suggestions for how we can help you in the comments. We don’t have all the answers, but we can work together to help you find what works for you and your family.
Trust me. If I can do it, so can you!
It’s my prayer that you and your family enjoy many happy homeschool years! Let’s do this together!
