When ever we are talking about homeschooling with non-homeschoolers we usually give them the rundown of what we feel are the benefits of homeschooling. One thing that I don’t think I have ever mentioned or even really thought much about until recently is the fact that WE learn so much =0)
I went to public school. I got decent grades and had a decent time. BUT I didn’t retain much of what I learned and I view my public education more as a hindrance than a help. Homeschooling my kids has given me what I was missing in my own education. I LOVE to learn! I have a passion for learning! I love to read. I love to share what I’m learning and MOST of my friends, ok all my NON homeschooling friends think I’m a total nerd =0) and I think its great!
This passion for learning has come from several different things I think. One is that I want to provide my kids with the best education I can. I can’t do that if I’m not learning and growing and sharing with them. I also am so insipred by you other homeschool parents out there! Homeschoolers are just the coolest people!! I think a good education is contagious. I cant help but see my kids learning and enjoying themselves and want to learn and enjoy too.
