  1. Kristi, I love your honesty here. I was recently asked to share my thoughts on homeschooling and they tumbled out sort of like yours today. It’s an amazing journey, and I wouldn’t trade it, but there are days when it’s just HARD. So thankful for a God who does not forsake us during the days of hard.
