Our homeschooling adventure truly began in September of 2006.
Our oldest was in fourth grade, our middle in first and our youngest was just a smidglet toddler of 2 years.
Before that our girls went to public school.
Our decision to homeschool was and continues to be a very personal one. I was not always a proponent of homeschooling. I'm still not a total proponent of homeschooling (in that I would think that everyone should homeschool- I don't). We homeschool because it is what God has led us to and is the best fit for our family.
Are there hard days? Oh, my yes.
Is it worth it? Oh my YES!
Do I ever want to quit? See repeating answer above....
