Catch the vision

While it might be tempting to jump into homeschooling with both feet, you need to include your eyes and your heart. Like any other endeavor, you need to count the cost, determine where you're going and consider why you are homeschooling. Having a clear vision and a heart-felt commitment will sustain you more than textbooks, lesson plans, science projects, and field trips. Homeschooling has many advantages, but there will be days when you can't remember a single one - guaranteed! Writing down your reasons, the commitment of your heart and what it means to be educated will help you during those difficult days and will help narrow some of your choices as you prepare to homeschool.
