I’m on the verge of a very proud homeschool mama moment. InshaAllah in June (just four months away 😱) my 20-year-old graduates from university with a double major. I already envision the crying mess I’m going to be when I see him in his cap and gown graduating from my husband’s and my alma mater, Alhumdulillah. As a homeschooling parent this moment is especially significant. It’s one I feel we share because his success feels like my success. Not to say there aren’t a hundred things I wish I did differently, but despite all the mistakes, we are all seeing the fruits of our labors. My husband and I tag teamed this homeschooling journey. It wasn’t exactly planned, but I’m so thankful for the way it turned out. I did 99% of the work up until the children exited high school and he did 99% of the work guiding them through community college and university. It worked perfectly! I got the relaxed childhood I wanted for their younger years and my husband got the rigor and academic discipline of upper education for their young adult years. Had we flipped, it would have been devastating. I’m thrilled and sad beyond words. Thrilled because I’m so proud of him and sad because it officially marks the end. It reminds me that this homeschool journey does eventually come to a close and I can see that I’m not going to handle it well 😭😭😭 at least I still have two who I am homeschooling ❤️

    Congratulations! You've down an amazing job Hana! 😀 so lovely that you and your husband are able to take on different but complimentary roles. Just out of interest, did your son sit any exams before college or university? This is something I get asked about a lot but my kids are too young for me to think about it 😂 @pepperandpine

    @multiculturalmotherhood Alhumdulillah! It worked out that way and then we also each got what we wanted as far as education. No, my son didn’t take many exams before college. He took a few state standardized tests though.

    You guys could write a book about homeschooling, dos, don'ts and a whole familly's joint effort towards growth in general, academics in particular. Beyond the personal experience we would get to learn from, your writing is just a pleasure to read! Thank you so much for your generosity masha'Allah!!!! Blessings

    @a.in.mena good idea 🙌
