The things my child taught me…

(This is part of the Friday meme at the Heart of the Matter – to read more responses, click here…)

We have not been homeschooling for very long, so I am sure this is a list that will get longer in coming years.  For now, I would say the most important thing I am learning is that it’s not about me.  I have all these great ideas and long term plans, but sometimes I need to just take a step back a realize that Madison and I are not the same person.  Things that work for me don’t always work for her.  So learning to be flexible and work with Madison’s learning style is probably one of the hardest things I am having to do, but is also probably so important for the future success of our homeschool.
