Yep, we homeschool.
Nope, I don’t wear skirts or jumpers….EVER.
Yes, I have taught my children at home since Kindergarten or kindigarten, or kindergarden….since the beginning.
No, I am not doing it for religious reasons.
Yes, I give my children a choice every year of going to public school or staying home. I do however love my job and pray my children choose to let me teach them every year.
No, I don’t have a Education degree just a degree in Electronic Media. Although, I don’t think ANY degree prepares you to EDUCATE (notice I didn’t say teach) your children. ALL teachers learn along the way.
Yes, we sometimes fight. Yes, we sometimes cry over math (I usually get over it quickly though).
Yes, we sleep in.
No, my children are not sheltered. No, my children don’t deal with bullying. No, my children don’t feel pressure to be something they are not. No, my children don’t wear name brand clothes and in fact being boys they sometimes don’t wear any clothes. No, I don’t think I am better than you for homeschooling, maybe crazier, but not better. No, I don’t think everyone should homeschool.
Yes, we feel we are a closer family for it. Yes, my children have friends outside of homeschooling. Yes, we do co-ops. Yes, I have learned right along with my children. YES, I feel like they are getting a great education!
That pretty much sums it up.
