One income

I've found that one of the trickiest things about homeschooling isn't curriculum, or schedules, but money money money! It's hard to raise a family on one income, which is usually the case when you are homeschooling. I was reading an article in Focus on the Family's April magazine (I'm a bit behind in my reading!!) and it said that the cost of raising one child to adulthood ranges from $143,000 to $289,000. Yikes!!!!

We homeschooling mommies can help out by trying to keep expenses low, and maybe picking up a few hours of at home work here and there, but this is for most of us going to continue to be a tricky area. Press on. Remember it's just a season of life that will pass. Enjoy today with your kiddos. I need to go do that now...
