Crying During Homeschooling…Again

By Joysautismblog @joysautismblog

And not the kids, it was me. I was doing a little lesson about Helen Keller with the girls this afternoon.

I like doing little units that we can do together. I save the worksheets and more details for Sanura and just let Nevaeh listen to the lecture and explain to her what braille is or what it means to be deaf or blind.

Helen’s story is absolutely amazing. To rise above being deaf and blind to accomplish all she did is tear worthy and I couldn’t help the tears from spilling over even though I tried. It was kind of funny to be reading that and explaining and Sanura stopped me and said “Mom, are you ok?” I guess it’s good for kids to see that side of things but I don’t know how teachers do it at school without crying.

I just wanted to share this quote from Helen:

The public must learn that the blind man is neither genius, nor a freak, nor an idiot. He has a mind that can be educated, a hand which can be trained, ambitions which it is right for him to strive to realize, and it is the duty of the public to help him make the best of himself so he can win light through work. ~Helen Keller
