I remember the first time my husband mentioned ‘homeschooling’. I was petrified! I hadn’t known any homeschoolers growing up and I was so scared of creating those weirdo types that can’t or won’t function in society. Because we had an Amish community nearby where I grew up, I pictured my kids like that and I refused to learn to make my own soap.
After some deliberation and much thought, I observed a friend of mine doing it, I interacted with her daughter, and thought that maybe I could do it.
A full 5 yrs into it, I have to chuckle at my fears. Not to say it’s always a walk in the park or breezy. It is quite fun,honestly. I love watching the ‘light’ go on with my kids.
