End of the school year

It is a mixed bag of a home school year, I think.

The good:
  • my World History and Literature survey course, if I do say so myself.
  • all the terrific books he read, the discussions we had and the papers he wrote
  • my son's taking responsibility for his own education
The bad:
  • all the terrific books we didn't get to
  • my not pushing enough here at the end of the school year
I'm reaching the end of my homeschool career as my ds will be taking some of his courses through the community college next year. He wants to be challenged and pushed, just not by me!! And that is ok, because I'd rather be a mom than a homeschool task master, I've decided. A huge part of our mother/son relationship centers around books -- fiction, science, great and silly books. We love to share books with each other and discuss them. I'm thrilled for the chance to be left with only being responsible for literature as it is what we do best.

One more year, possibly two, but my homeschooling days are waning.
