First time for everything

Today was our first day of home school. The kids were very excited, and ready to learn. At first it was shaky and now that we have day one under our belts, I feel a little more like I know what I'm doing. HA! We'll see if they know anything by the end of the year..hee hee!They were very enthusiastic about doing math...I know, crazy, right??
I'm struggling with some issues, that are pretty big and some that aren't, but struggling just the same. I don't want to really go into it all, because I just don't want to open the flood gates. I know it doesn't matter if we are different. We have more than the average household, we have a special needs child, I'm a stay at home mom, (and let me tell you, that is an oddity by this society's standard). I'm pretty conservative. On the verge of very conservative. We don't have a large income and things stay nice and tight. Most days, I feel like I'm a duck without a pond. Most days.

Oh dear sister, sending hugs your way so you know you're not going it alone! How fortunate we are to SAHM's who are homeschooling. God provides in some awesome ways, no need for excess when it comes to the budget because he promises us our "daily bread" and on that we can rest. God bless your journey!
