The Homeschool Decision

Many might find it interesting that homeschooling seemed like a strange almost scary place for me.  With all of my years of teaching, and experience in school, this was totally new, and carried a huge amount of responsibility for me.  My daughter is extremely gifted, and motivated, so this time in our lives together has been very rewarding.  It has also made us naturally closer, as we are together all day, and I am grateful for that as well.  She started her life with me here as I held her in my arms and taught preschool to my 3 year old daughter and her friends.  It seems like a natural place for us to be again.
