She *is* my daughter!

I had a lovely evening out with my charming eldest daughter last week and we were discussing all sorts of things from sibling relationships to home schooling. I asked her what she would like to study next year and her response blessed my history-loving heart!


"Besides history you mean, right?"


That's my girl! It is an immense blessing when I see they see the bigger picture and that history is not some disconnected boring textbook subject. When they beg me for another chapter of our history, or they ask me to continue the historical fiction book I am reading, it makes all that research beforehand, the time and patience it takes to teach it all worthwhile. I love homeschooling and would not trade it for the world. I mean that. I love the time we spend together, I love seeing the lightbulbs go on. I love being with my children as they grow. 


Not every day is easy, and not every day will we have this type of joy, but every day is a gift from God to me, a blessing I need to remember that will never come again.


Enjoy those little ones!

to your outstanding items. We are rather new homeschoolers and my list for summer/fall is getting long :) I've bookmarked it for further study. I want our family to be like yours when we grow up lol.
