Homeschooling Joys

~ being intimately involved in curriculum choices for your child
~ sitting side by side with each child on our couch, going over new concepts
~ seeing understanding dawn in your child's eyes when a concept is grasped
~ teaching my children about God and His Word
~ my children feeling no shame or hesitation in talking about God

We are in our second week of Home School. This is my first year to be teaching three grade levels simultaneously. I was quite nervous about this. But with God's great mercy and hours of careful planning, things are running smoothly. Right now, I am just so thankful for the great privilege of schooling my children at home. Polishing treasures indeed.

My favorite things about homeschooling (ditto everything you said) plus:

Snuggling up together in the morning and then having a leisurely breakfast with devotions- no rushing for the school bus!
