This is Why We Homeschool


"Sunsets, like childhood, are viewed with wonder not just because they are beautiful but because they are fleeting." 
-Richard Paul Evans

There will be time for math. 


And time to learn how to read. 


And time to diagram sentences and label maps and memorize the presidents.


On the hard days (so many hard days) I forget why I'm doing this. 
I think life would be simpler if Elijah were in a traditional school. 
I imagine I would have more "me" time and the days would be less chaotic. 


But life is short and childhood is even shorter. 


This is why we homeschool.



This is not a manifesto on why I think you should homeschool. This is not a judgment on the choices you have made for your family. I trust you have made the right choice for your family because I trust you love your family. This is a reminder for me.
