Turning 49 for the First Time

Today is my birthday, and I'm turning 49 - for the FIRST time!

I'm sure that it will become easier and easier each time I turn 49.  In four years, I'll probably be thinking, "49?  What a breeze!  Such a great age!" And at some point I'll long for the "good old days" of being 49 again.  I'll remember how young and spry I felt, LOL!

Homeschooling high school is the same.  You may be homeschooling high school - for the FIRST time.  But each year it will get easier.  By the time you've finished your first four years of high school it will feel like old hat. You'll remember how fun freshman year was.  You'll remember the freedom. You may even remember how sweet and compliant your children were!  Ha!  You probably won't remember too many of the struggles.  Four years from now is a long time away, and those memories do fade, you know.


You're homeschooling high school for the first time.  I'm turning 49 for the first time.  Years from now we'll both be old pros!

Hi Sue,
It will be nice to meet you in Cincinnati! We didn't have that slogan... It's been too long for me to remember. Probably so old my memory is going, LOL!
Blessings,
Lee

Me too! I turned 49 on February 20th! Was your high school slogan "'79 is fine!" too? I still have six and a quarter years left in my homeschool career before I retire. I will have homeschooled a total of twenty-five years when all is said and done and my six children are all graduated. At this point I have two done and four to go. I'm looking forward to seeing you at the Midwest Homeschool Conference in April!

Happy birthday Lee (for the first time). We will be the same age for exactly 10 days. After half a century of living I should be able to handle high school. That was a great analogy.
