Thank you so much for great year! My resolution for next year is to be able to write on this blog about how I get better at taking care of myself while I am homeschooling. And running a startup. This coming year I want to tell you about weight loss. And marital bliss. And no more yelling at my kids.

But the truth is that this homeschooling journey has never been about having my act together. And I really appreciate that you’re coming along with me anyway.

Thank you for keeping me in line when I get too preachy and thank you for encouraging my preachiness when I start to lose my homeschooling confidence.

Also, thank you for allowing me to post pictures of my kids as they grow, because I was never good at taking pictures of my kids’ lives until I had a reason to for my work. It is messed up, I know, but at least I will have a record of my kids’ childhoods now.

This photo is them playing King of the Hill. I think they are about to roll down the hill. I hope when I look back on our homeschooling adventure I remember it as full of these smiles of excitement and anticipation.
