Default My Youngest Finished Homeschooling Today

We've been a homeschooling family since 2008 and today my youngest completed the last of his work.

I can't believe this season of my life is over. It sure is bittersweet.

My next season will have more completed knitting projects.

Seriously, though, my older brother has Parkinson's, and my parents are elderly, so I'll have more time to care for them and I'm so grateful for that.

That's wonderful that you'll have more time to spend with them.

It's great that you can *help* with that, but don't let it take over your life. It's easy for elderly parents to not realize, usually out of fear of things like the cost of paid care, how their needs mean a child has little time for herself and her spouse. Set healthy boundaries now at the beginning.
