Realistic Homeschool Goals

Best to be flexible when setting homeschool goals.

True story:

I was asked to put together a small ensemble of musicians from our homeschool praise band to play two songs at our homeschool community’s graduation this afternoon.  I tried, but people’s schedules just didn’t cooperate.  Finally yesterday morning I simply contacted the coordinator of the event, told her the situation, and together we said, “Oh, what a shame.  It would have been nice to have the kids play.”  And then we moved on to plan B for the event.  The world did not actually come to an end.  We were flexible, and it was a blessing.
