When Z and I were putting together his Video Portfolio, we looked through all of the pictures from this school year. There were a lot of great pictures from our first year homeschooling and we had a hard time taking photos out to make the video shorter. As we looked through, this picture always jumped out from all the rest. I LOVE this picture. It captures my favorite moments from this year in one sweet shot.
When I reflect upon the year, the times that stand out to me are our Read Aloud times. Whether Z was reading to me, I was reading to him or it was a morning snuggle with both kids….I have loved these moments. I love reading new books, rereading old favorites and learning about new things. These cozy moments help us to slow down, cuddle up and enjoy one of my favorite things…reading. I love that my children love books and I hope that moments like these will help this love to continue.
Our first year homeschooling was a bit of a roller coaster. We had share of laughter, fear, joy, frustration, pride and all of the other emotions in between. It was a learning process for me just as much as it was for Z. But looking at this photo, I get teary. I am so proud of all that we have accomplished this year and look forward to another year of more moments like these.
