We interrupt this fascinating documentary on the museum I visited because I have been tagged by Donna for a MeMe on how we started homeschooling.
When the boy was to enter into Kindergarten, I knew that I didn’t want him going to public school because I knew that they wouldn’t be teaching them the same ideals that I had already been doing for the previous 5 years. So, I worked at a Christian private school to pay for his tuition to attend. During his 1st grade year, I began to panic because the daughter would be entering school, and my working there wouldn’t cover both tuitions. As I shared this with my best friend, she suggested home schooling. This excited me and frightened me just a little. The first year that I was in college, my major was elementary education. I love to teach others anything that I know. So, I researched it, pre-internet, at the library and spoke with other home schooled people. I liked what I saw, so we started in his second grade year. We have never looked back. The boy will graduate in 2008, and I am ever so proud of him.
The thing I love most about home schooling is watching the chocolate chips learn new things, and really get to know just who they are. Kids are really interesting people. I have not for one minuted regretted home schooling. Thank you Beverly. You have always been a great friend and inspiration to me.
Did you know any of this about me?
