It’s all homeschool all the time! How was your first day? Ours was significantly better than last years; which may or may not be due to the copious amounts of frozen yogurt that were consumed. I also allowed them to check out several comic books (Superman from the 40s!) at the library, which I usually try to limit when school is in session. Our afternoon was capped off by me leading them all into the grocery store to pick up dinner. I never shop with all the kids, as most of the other shoppers could probably tell. Think “sailors on leave”. Thankfully, it wasn’t crowded and we made it home without me yelling at everyone. (Yes, this is still me I’m writing about. I’m like a big teddy bear when I’m full of fro yo.)
Our first day back reminded me of all the reasons I love homeschooling and why, despite the days of wanting to crawl under the computer desk and hide, we persevere. So in the spirit of the week, my five favorite reasons for homeschooling.
I’ve learned that homeschooling is not for everyone, however as our family begins its seventh year of homeschooling (eight if you count PreK), I see the fruit it bears for us and would never want to choose otherwise. Hopefully, today will go just as smoothly without the frozen yogurt. If not, I know I can always swing back to Hallie’s for more favorites sure to lift my mood.
