We’re a homeschooling family.
There are millions of little reasons I’m glad we are, but none of those influenced our choice in the beginning. Would you like the know the big thing that put us over the edge? What made us realize it was worth a try?
It was The Dad.
My husband is a pastor. Which means he might be called to work at any time of day or night. It also means he’ll definitely be expected to work on weekends. Every weekend. And holidays. Every holiday. And many evenings during the week.
And our children, if they were in school outside our home, would be home (without their dad) for all those times. Weekends, holidays, evenings… would be spent thinking their Dad is too busy to spend time with them.
Dad wanted more time, not less, with his children.
So we took the plunge and gave homeschooling a try. And it worked. We see each other! The kids have a Dad, the wife has a husband… we even eat meals together. Isn’t that nice?
Yay! We love our Dad!
