Our One Year Homeschooling Experiment Take-Away
A great analogy for this truth is the dreaded power outage. I spent the past two days fretting over losing power during the latest derecho warnings in the D.C. area. We lose power at the drop of a hat in our neighborhood, as it is filled with large, old trees and overhead power lines. But as I reflect on the times we have lost power for extended periods (blizzards, hurricanes, tornadoes, Oh My!), there is always that sweet point where having no power frees everyone's mind and schedule to just sit and enjoy each other and slow down to reconnect. That is what this year of homeschooling felt like to me...a prolonged sweet spot to reconnect with both Jackson and Caroline, and for them to reconnect with each other.
