I have a 3 1/2 year old, a 2 year old and a 5 month old, all boys and my husband is a pastor. All my life I felt like God had called me to home school my children. I recently started trying to homeschool my 3 1/2 year old who is very bright. But it is so much harder than I though it would be trying to teach him while trying to involve my 2 year old who is obviously not anywhere near the same developmental level, while trying to take care of my youngest and keep the house clean, along with all the other things on my to do list, while being at church events 4 nights a week, and trying to enjoy my marriage and husband. We recently started talking about sending our oldest to Pre-K at the christian school at our church in the fall to help ease things up for me at home but I am having a hard time giving up what I felt like was my calling. Any advice for a mom who is trying to start homeschooling and finding it really really hard?
