homeschoolin' like a champ

You may or may not recall that I've taken on the {HUGE} task of homeschooling our eldest this year.

-He goes back and forth between liking the new system and missing his school friends. 
-I go back and forth between enjoying the extra time with him and wishing for a moment to myself. 

But you can't help and notice: he's smiling more...sharing...giving out hugs for no reason at all...laughing...looking out for his siblings...not fighting every instruction...helping out with a smile...striking out gracefully...relaxing his shoulders...sleeping...listening to the sitters...enjoying learning...
I'm not silly. 
I know the year will have it's challenges. 
I know that homeschooling isn't the cure all for his broken little heart.
But I am confident that he is right where he is supposed to be. 
And thats helps me smile instead of FREAKING out when we walk into a room full of mounted bugs.
