There are moments when I question if we are doing the right thing, keeping them home. But, more often, there are moments like these that let me know we are doing exactly what is best for our family, and for right now, it's keeping them home. For that, I'm thankful.
What a wonderfully fun way to learn! :)ReplyDelete
You know I'm a big fan of homeschooling, so I agree that they are just where they need to be. Everything counts as learning! Enjoy your wee ones.ReplyDelete
Great shots! I love for kids to be able to do art. Working in education I have mixed feelings about homeschooling, with you however, no worries! You can spell, put a sentence together, and are very articulate. You seem to have a balanced life as well. Sadly I have seen home-schooled parents homeschooling their children with poor educational outcomes. I think some also have feelings of religious persecution, where they feel no one should be able to control them, so they home school. There are some (I'm very familiar with them in Idaho) who teach their children a re-written version of history. Very sad. I think it's very fear-based and seems about control again. The kids are so confused later when they realize there's no scientific evidence for some of that. Sorry, but Jesus didn't live in America before the Natives did :( Show me a archaeologist who can verify that? Anyway, good luck to you! You certainly have a great farm-lab as well!!!ReplyDelete
