No matter how well you plan, something out of your control will always mess it up.
It's good to plan anyway.
Seize precious opportunities when they arise.
But weigh your options and know when enough is enough.
Environment, environment, environment.
Environment is both your attitude and your surroundings.
Even a homeschool mom can wonder, "Where the heck did they learn that?" But it's often a good surprise.
No matter how many great philosophies you read, it always comes back to trusting yourself with your own kids.
No matter how perfect your approach, you're still going to have bad days.
Sometimes it's best to set aside the books and go ride bikes.
Sometimes it's best to commit to something you want to learn, and actually do what it takes.
My kids still teach me more than I teach them.
