About Rest for the Weary

I hope you will find this little spot a place of rest and refreshment for your soul. My intention is to build up women in the trenches of homeschooling. This includes veterans who are burned out and former homeschooling moms who have decided for one reason or another to put some or all of their children in school. Thanks for stopping by. Take a deep breath of refreshment for your weary soul.

31 day writing challenge: parent teacher conferences

I didn't plan this one; It was scheduled for me.  It is that time of the year at my children's school. I had parent teacher conferences for my children. All of them finished their first 9 weeks with amazing grades.  Most of them are adapting socially as well.  For those of you moms concerned if your children will do well academically, I am sure they will.  This was always one of my biggest fears; That we weren't doing enough to keep up with schools.  It is hard when you have no one to compare yourself to, and all of the responsibility falls on our shoulders.  But it is true what statistics say about homeschoolers.  They tend to thrive especially academically if and when they go to school. I have spent the last 9 weeks praying for academic success for my dyslexic child and another child that really feels stupid.  God has been so generous in answering those prayers.  I want my children to gain confidence, and this helps so much.  My second prayer has been for them to make good friends.  That one has been a bit harder especially for my middle school children, but it is happening.

Aren't they cute?
