Why I homeschool


No, my house isn't spotless, there are dishes in the sink, and the dirty clothes threaten to take over my bedroom. :)

But in my house little minds are being developed. Little light bulbs flicker on, and I know that they finally understand the math problem we have been working on for what seems like hours. :) I get to see them succeed as they try their best. I also see them struggle to grasp some things, and I get to watch as they learn.

My little learners

I am by no means a perfect teacher. I'm just a homeschool mom who loves to see my kids learn. I do struggle sometimes to be patient as they are learning. But with some prayer and coffee, we make it through. :)

I'm blessed to be able to homeschool my kids. I count it a privileged.

I know some may look at us and say, “They are an odd group of people” and yes we are! :) We are a homeschool family, and I love it!

Baptisms...

All three of our kids were baptised last week! It was a blessing to see them follow The Lord in this step of obedience. 

I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth. 3 John 1:4

School

You may be wondering why the kids are sporting some pretty sweet moustaches. First of all, they are just plain fun. Secondly, I used them to remind the kids to ask questions. Here is a fun little picture to explain it a little better
