I love blogs with pictures. I love cell phones that work. Sadly, I have neither of those things right now. :)
I wanted to share with you one of the things I love most about homeschooling. I get to learn! I know that might sound silly or ridiculous, but I never knew how much I didn't know until I started homeschooling. Sure, the first few years, you're teaching basic stuff and you likely already know whatever you're talking to your kids about...but then they get bigger. And school becomes just really fun! Hectic, tiring, overwhelming, sometimes, but fun!
Adisson's favorite subjects are science and social studies. He'd love to NEVER have to do language arts, spelling, or math. We could read about ancient Egypt for the whole day and don't get me started on his love of science experiments. I get excited, too, because sometimes I feel like I'm learning things for the first time.
This week is yet another busy one and next week is shaping up to be even more so. But every few days we take a trip out to our home site and find out new things about building a house. At our new house, we'll have half an acre of woods and the boys are ECSTATIC! Bugs, sticks, dirt, trees....honestly, the environment was a large determining factor in us choosing that house, that subdivision (very secluded and private), that plot of land. All so my little guys can spend time every day getting to see stuff, touch stuff, experience things that we wouldn't otherwise.
So the long and short of it....it's fun to be a homeschooling family when you love learning as much as we do. :)
