When you leave the world of school to enter homeschooling, the world opens up and the learning possibilities become endless.  Homeschooling isn’t school at home. Don’t follow in the failing footsteps of school. Toss school aside and imagine a new reality – one where you and your children learn what you want to learn and how you want to learn it.

Make your own paths and embrace learning and life.

Homeschooling is what YOU make it.

    JUST the most beautiful post… and precisely what I needed to read and see tonight! How much your little men have grown!! WOW!! I am still alive but in the trenches with the baby teething horribly, the 3yr old testing boundaries and tantruming, and the 6yr old just sick and tired of book work and school! So I very much needed a reminder of what homeschooling is supposed to be! Thank you!!!

    I love all the pictures in this post. My favorite part though? The first sentence. 🙂 It’s children learning about God in the family He gave them. Amen and amen.
