High School can be Overwhelming!

We’re starting homeschooling high school on Monday.  I’m nervous, my son is nervous – we’re a bundle of nerves.  We just sat down with his planner to determine what week one looks like – Yikes! 

It really isn’t so so much, but when you transition from the lazy days of summer to the rigor of a full load, it’s a bit, well, overwhelming.

He’ll be taking six courses this year:
  • Honors Biology
  • Honors English I
  • Spanish I
  • Computer Applications/ 3D Programming
  • Geometry
  • Honors American History
We’ve talked and talked about how it all matters from Day One if you want to have your successful path laid out for college.  He knows that, I know that.  I fear failure.

Not for him, for me.  I am so afraid to fail him.  Don’t push too hard, push hard enough, give him all the opportunity available, let him spread his wings, keep him focused, let him grow. 
Dear God – please, please lead and give me the wisdom to follow! 
One more day, then it’s on… 


  1. Best wishes to you both! He does have a very strong schedule--it looks wonderful! It sure sounds like all your guys are doing just fine:) I will be thinking of you all the first day!

  2. Thanks, Heather! Good luck to you and yours too!
