I have been nothing but excited since we made the decision to homeschool. But starting yesterday I have started getting anxious and I'm worried. I have a history of being all gung-ho about things, and not always following through...but never with my kids, anything I have done in their best interest all gung-go, I have followed through. So I don't think it's that I won't follow through, once I make a commitment to them, I do it whole heartedly. But there is that little evil part of my brain saying "are you sure you know what you're doing?!"
I know in my heart this is the best decision for both of them. I also have DHs full support, even his full support to not work (but I won't be allowed to complain about money either :P lol). He has definitely been encouraging, but in the beginning he reminded me that I don't always follow through, so I feel like he kind of 'planted that seed.'
Yesterday and today I did so much, I got our science curriculum squared away (thanks to a special Angel :) and printed the kids workbooks, I printed their first 15 weeks of their spelling (a free program similar to All About Spelling!), and made letter tiles for DDs spelling. I added more bulk to what I had planned for math, and I made a math game even! I reviewed and adjusted our initial goals for the kids for the year and listed our resources. I found a free grammar program. And I've been slowly working on our History Lessons.
I don't know if it's just a little panic setting in since I have done so much in a couple days, or what. Is it normal? Am I just over thinking everything? We are planning on starting in a few weeks, just slowly, but maybe I should put it off until September like I originally planned. I am really having fun planning and seeing it all come together. I don't know why I am so anxious about it :(
Thanks for letting me vent, any advice or tips are appreciated!!
