(**Another blast from the past.**)
Why am I doing this homeschooling thing? The kids aren’t involved with enough other children, or so others say. The kids aren’t in activities that can be observed by relatives, or friends (if they’d actually come to observe them). The kids aren’t covering things in the order in which schools teach them. The kids aren’t doing the things that other kids their ages are doing. Why am I doing this?!? The kids are involved with children they enjoy, few as they may be. The kids are in activities that bring them happiness and develop the skills that they will use the rest of their lives to impact those around them for good (these activities are observed by those who know them well and love them, relatives and otherwise). The kids are covering what they need to cover, when they need to cover it and more. Whether, or not schools agree with the idea of usefulness is not a matter of our concern. As for the fact that the kids aren’t doing the things that other kids their ages are doing…all I have to say is, EXACTLY!
