Six Homeschool Students vs The Toddler

My precious 2 year old toddler decided after watching me sort through curriculum, book after book that he would sort too! A quick flip, toss, and dump and this is what I discover!

And trust me, this is NOT the only pile of destruction!

Am I really ready to start school with one very active toddler?

Absolutely NOT!

Where are the lock and keys for my cabinet of supplies? Because one turn of the back and here would be our next discovery!

Art work on the wood cabinet!

I figure this years lesson in school will be more about me learning grace, patience, and how to adjust my expectations of homeschooling students in 12th, 9th, 7th, 6th, 3rd, and 1st grader.

The sad thing is the other 6 don't scare me, it's the TODDLER that frightens me!

  1. Oh, Shannon I'm so sorry, but I have to say it's good to hear you talk about this. Toddlers are my biggest obstacle to homeschooling!! It can be so frustrating and hard to handle in the midst of trying to teach!...and I only have 3 I'm homeschooling! I love your posts! Thanks for being real! I miss you! Janell
