How awesome is it that I get to hang out with these kids every day? Being a stay-at-home parent isn't something that everyone gets to do, much less homeschool their kids. I'm so blessed to be able to do it. I love having them with me day in and day out, although we have our stressful days. Trust me! I just love that I get to prioritize what they are learning about. They can watch the ins and outs of how to run a business (as I learn myself). They are learning to socialize with a lot more than just their peers. We talk to cashiers at the store, the clerk at the library, other homeschooling kids at playgroup, a grandpa at the book store. They also aren't told when they can and can't use the restroom... that was always one thing that "irked" me about school. Ha! We were met with concern and questions when family learned that we wanted to homeschool, but I think it's pretty apparent as they are getting older that it's working out just perfectly. They are intelligent, thoughtful little people and I can't think of anyone cooler to hang out with every day.
