Momming it Hard and Homeschool

By Julia Robertson, April 2, 2020

I’ve spent more extended time with my son in the last three weeks, than I’ve spent with him in his life.

Excuse me while I gloat about my son. I went back to work full time when Logan was only three months old. I was always envious of  stay at home moms. Although I know being at home full time has its challenges too, I missed spending those early years with Logan. We all do the best we can, with the time we have. Fast forward eleven years and here we are homeschooling during the “Stay home, Stay Healthy” order. I’ve really enjoyed coming up with a home schooling plan for him. In the past few weeks I’ve found that there is far more that I wish he already had learned at school, and this is my opportunity to teach him.

Fortunately I had workbooks from summer that have kept him busy on the basic subjects. The fun stuff that we’ve learned is researching Abstract Art, artists and what medium they used. He is writing a fiction story in Googledocs and a research paper about “Zodiac signs”.  He’s studying “communications” by creating a YouTube channel. I was surprised that as a 5th grader they haven’t learned the United States and the capitals yet, so we’re working on that too!

Today I received an email from his teacher that they will have online school starting this Friday. Feeling lucky that I got to spend the time with Logan doing “homeschool”.  Best of luck to the parents out there working from home, parenting 24-7, and momming it hard. Hugs, Julia

Be well & Stay safe out there.
