Learning at Home

We’re all trying to teach our kids what matters most to us: being a person of good character, the family faith, life skills they’ll need someday as adults, to love all kinds of people, and to enjoy learning new things. 

I give myself lots of grace, and I hope you do, too. Because you know what? I also want to create fun family memories that serve no other purpose whatsoever, preserve the health and excitement in our marriage, and take care of myself. It’s A LOT to manage. 

Let’s just take little manageable steps and don’t try to do everything at once. Remember, our kids don’t need perfect parents, they just need loving ones. It’s hard to be loving when you’re obsessing about getting everything right. So let’s just get the things right that matter most to us.
