Welcome to another installment of the “Why Homeschool?” guest post series. This series started as a way to share the stories of different families who are homeschooling and help others along the way. These stories have been so amazing, each and every one. If you are interested in participating in this series or reading past issues, see my Guest Post page. Today we are hearing from Cari. Enjoy!!
I’m so glad to be a part of this series! It has been so inspiring to read the different stories of why people chose to homeschool. It’s so nice to know I’m not alone out there, that others have struggled with the same things I have.
While homeschooling does have it’s challenges, I LOVE being able to set my own schedule, take field trips when we want, teach my children practical life skills, and just cuddle on the couch and read. I love being able to take my children places rather than just reading about them (we went to Paris in November and will go to Rome this fall). I love that I can enjoy reading good literature with them and teach them to think rather than just doing busywork. I love that when my husband puts on a National Geographic movie for them to watch, they jump up and down with excitement, and that they would rather play Chess than watch cartoons. I love that I get to be present for every milestone of my children’s lives and that they can be each other’s best friends.
