As a new homeschool Mom, I put a ton of time into picking the correct curriculum. Is it fun enough? Is it educational enough? Does it share God's love enough? Is it organized enough for me? Can I teach both kids similar things at the same time? Oh boy, oh boy! There are SO many options.
I cannot tell you the number of different curriculums I've researched. I was so overwhelmed and really just sat down and prayed that I would pick the right one for my kids and myself. The answer to my prayer really shocked me... It doesn't matter!
As long as I like the layout, it really doesn't matter which one I pick. My kids will get a quality education either way. I am the one to make it fun. I am the one to share God's love. I am the one to the answer to all of my questions.
So... when picking a curriculum, don't stress! Pick something that has the same values as you do. Pick something that is organized the way you like, then stick with it. I finally settled on My Father's World. I have a few good friends that use MFW, I like the values, and I also enjoy the organization.
Here we are, jumping in feet first. I couldn't be more excited to start this year with a Kindergartner and First Grader! I am sure it will be fun and challenging, but I am really looking forward to it!
