I just attended for the 2nd time our local homeschool convention. Last year we had just pulled DD out of school and I was manically trying to figure out what we were going to "do" w/ her. I had big plans of merging Charlotte Mason, Classical Ed, etc. I went to the convention and was completely overwhelmed by the offerings of various "must have" curriculums. After purchasing a *lot* of different items, books etc. etc. we got started. And we were miserable. I couldn't get it to all come together, she felt lost in a sea of "what now?" etc.

So in january after much prayer and consideration we switched to My father's World. I got to hear them speak this year at the convetion and it was such a relief to walk through the vendor halls completely free of feeling like I needed to find the "next best thing", KWIM? I spent time at the MFW booth looking at the materials for next year and then found other little items, like a recipie book etc. that would be easy to have fun w/ next year. It was so liberating to not be sucked into the madness of choosing which curriculum for which subject for which child, etc.

Just thought I'd share that putting on the blinders to other things left me feeling refreshed and re-convicted about our homeschooling choice and not overwhelmed by possiblity!

I can't wait to start "school" on Monday!
