  1. This is great, Angel. I’m diving into homeschooling this fall for my 3 oldest (7th, 6th and 3rd graders). My 6 year old is going to first grade and I’ve got a 4 year old in the mornings of preschool…I’m terrified and excited and these quotes are just what we needed!

      Nervous and excited is how I feel at the beginning of every school year. These quotes are a great help to me, too! (So I guess this post could’ve been titled “10 Quotes to Keep Parents and Kids Motivated This School Year”) Anyway, your being terrified only shows that you care enough to try your best. And trying your best will ensure a productive school year. Have fun!

  2. I like this one, too: Education is not the filling of a bucket, but the lighting of a fire. -Yeats
