So, if you home school, may I encourage you to continue on. There will be hard days, and yes, there are plenty of other things you could be doing with your time. But when its all over, you will be so happy with investing your time into your children. It is a freedom we have today that we may not always have and the best way to keep a freedom is to use that freedom! Even if it means living on one income, please consider the investment in your children's lives as more valuable than anything money can buy. If it is just too hard for you, consider other methods such as using computer classes or even simplify what you are doing. When it comes down to it, a 6th grade education is more valuable than a college degree if your child leaves home with a heart for God and a love of learning.
Meanwhile, here's a few pictures down memory lane of our school days.
|Priscilla's graduation table.|
|My father-in-law giving Hosanna her graduation Bible.|
|Miriam graduated by herself at our church.|
|Isaac's graduation class at our church.|
|Taking CAT tests. Maybe our kids were strange, but they enjoyed doing these!|
|Going to ACE conventions were always a highlight!|
|Priscilla dissecting owl droppings.|
|Okay, this is a really old picture and the kids wanted to make it look like school was the worst thing in the world!|
Have a great week everyone!
