Tales of a Homeschool Nothing ~ Fairs, Field Trips, & Failure

Sorry, not much new this week. Lots of questions, doubts, & second thoughts. That's ok, I tend to get like this from time to time. Just overlook me.

The local fair was this week. My kids usually look forward to this. They usually get really excited about what they can make, about what they can enter. The past 2 years, they have entered many things, have won several ribbons, & have even earned money from their creations.

This year, the enthusiasm wasn't there. The desire wasn't there. And saddest of all - the creations weren't there! We have not made ANYTHING in the past year that could have been entered.

I know that Logan distracted me from A LOT last year, but really, REALLY - nothing! This depressed me more than you can imagine. This just compounded the doubt that I already wrestle with on a daily basis.


On a positive note - we went to Latta Plantation this week for a walk through on 18th century medicine. We learned that it didn't matter if you had a simple sore throat or a condition as serious as whooping cough, a lot of people didn't survive the treatment of diseases.

Thankfully, medicine has come a long way since then!
