Homeschooling Thoughts

I rarely talk about homeschooling on this blog, but it is a major part of my life.  It’s one of my top priorities, so it takes a lot of my time.  I now have a senior and a freshman. Gone are the elementary and junior high days.  We do trigonometry, computer science, American history, and the like.  My aging brain finds it harder and harder to learn.

However, I am glad I homeschool my kids.  There are tough days, but overall I love being with my boys and watching them grow and learn.  I do know that over the years I have made some mistakes.  Some that I continue to rectify, and others that we are just dealing with; can’t change them.  I remember when I started, I thought someone doing it for 10 years was a veteran.  I am on my 13th year, and I still don’t feel like a veteran because each year is so different.

I ran across this article, 25 Homeschooling Truths I Wish I Had Known on Homeschool Diaries.  I do wish I knew them when I started. Maybe if I had known them, I wouldn’t have made some of my mistakes.

BUT mistakes or not, my boys have turned out to be quite the young men.  They are respectful, kind, generous and, oh yeah, quite smart.  I am proud of them, and I kinda like ’em.
