When we first began homeschooling eight years ago, I was excited for my children to experience hands-on learning. I bought a popular history program and eagerly jumped in. I wanted them to love history, and I wanted learning to be fun!
It took most of the first semester before I was willing to admit that my carefully-planned projects were an epic fail. My children were distracted and kept asking when our latest project would be done. They were merely enduring all the fun things I had planned for them to enjoy.
