Well, I’m happy to say that by the time you read this, I’ll either be on the airplane to Canada, or maybe even cruising the Canadian Gulf Islands on my parents’ boat. (I’m so excited!! I have been dreaming of this trip for years!) Before leaving home though, I’ve had a lot to do..So much to do to prepare for the boys and I to travel, to prepare to leave Dave alone at home (awww,) and also preparing for the homeschool year that begins just ten days after we get back! Wow. Just wow.
So in this hectic state, I hope you’ll understand that this video is very unscripted, and casual. There is so much more I could have said…So much I would like to add…
But (like I say in the vid–) I really wanted to post it before I leave town because of the timing:
It’s summer. Some of you (raise your hand,) have been thinking…talking…praying…losing sleep over…whether or not you might just want to take the leap and try homschooling your kid(s.) And a few of you have requested that I share a video about homeschooling.
So here it is! A scratch on the surface of some of the honest reasons I love homeschooling.
This is how I talk when a friend stops by to visit and says “So…I’m thinking about homeschooling…I’m not sure I have it in me…But go ahead—Tell me some of the things you love about it.” It’s not scientific, or refined. I’s just me being real.
Of course for every point I made, I can imagine a number of follow-up questions. Feel free to leave me those here or on my contact form. I’m likely to do a follow-up post when I get back.
I so hope you’ll consider sharing this on Facebook, Pinterest, with your husband and your neighbors…Someone you know might need this right now. 🙂
You also might want to check out my other homeschool posts: The one about our “Good, bad, and slightly awkward” homeschool life, here. Five Myths about homeschool families here (Huffington post version, here. :))
Hopefully, if the internet cooperates, I’ll check in midway through our trip. I’ll have a crew of young photographers on board, happy to capture the amazing scenery while I nap on deck. 🙂
With much Aloha!
