  1. I love seeing the look on my daughters face when it clicks. Also, I love the freedom to just pack up and go if we want and have been accused of being a sort of gypsy by a non-homeschooler. LOL

  2. Hmmm. I once was told that there were no greater highs or lower lows in life than those of parenting. They were wrong. There no greater highs or lower lows than those on the homeschool journey. I love home education. Watching her face light up with delight when she finally understands that new math concept. Seeing her despair over getting another word wrong in writing. Truly it is a journey, as much for me as it is for them.

  3. There are so many things I love about homeschooling, I’m not sure I can think of just one. I love the flexibility and the freedom to delve deeply into a subject that they love. I also love to see my sons’ faces light up when they finally get something they’ve been working on. Field trips and just spending time with them is a plus too!

  4. Thanks for this. I am a new subscriber. I am in my first year homeschooling and I like it because we have so much flexibility and my kids can move at their own pace and not be confined to the pace of the classroom. We can park on something or accelerate as they need it. I also really love having my kids with me all day.

    • I noticed that about my family too. It’s difficult to get to know each other if you spend the majority of your day apart. Think of all the memories and stories you and your children will have to share in the coming years.

  5. My girls have been all over the place: public school, private, and now, here at home. By far, I have found the most inner peace about schooling them at home. The fact that we work at their level and our own pace, makes other obstacles in our everyday, every bit worth it. All 3 of my girls are different learners, but there is so much quality curriculum out there it is almost overwelming! I truly feel after the path we have gone down, this is where I’ve been called to be. I only wish I would’ve started sooner…

    • Hi Melissa,
      You have listed some excellent points. With homeschooling you can create an individualized education for each of your girls. I agree that you can get overwhelmed with the amount of curriculum choices that are available. Cathy Duffy’s Top 100 Picks for Homeschool Curriculum(http://cathyduffyreviews.com/) is valuable when determining what curriculum to use for your child.

  6. I love that I have the opportunity to build stronger relationships with my children and that they also have stronger bonds to each other. I am blessed to be here with them to help them with their strengths and weaknesses and most importantly, their walk with God.

  7. This is my first time leaving a reply on a blog and our family’s first year of homeschooling. It has been quite a year of learning for all of us. When people ask, I tell them we have “good days and better days!” But I am already finding comfort in the comments and messages that I am reading on your blog. I appreciate what you do, Lisa, and would love the opportunity to talk with you!
    I love how homeschooling gives us the challenge and allows us the opportunity to be together and grow closer together as a family.
