I always…share what I have learned.
I always…say what I think and sometimes it gets me into trouble.
I always … Home School!
I always, always, always…Home School or at least it feels like that.
This is my 21st year of home schooling. I have been through grade school 5 times, I guess that would be 6 times if I include going through myself. I am still finishing up my last time through middle school and high school. I actually got out of doing the final two years in high school for the 4th time because my daughter is attending college full time for the last two years of high school. I still get to tutor her in some of her classes but at least do not have to teach.
What I did not learn the first time through each of these grades I have learned by now I think. I was always good at math but never understood English. Now I am fairly proficient at English and if I have any problems I just ask my kids as that seems to be their best subject.
It has been quite a journey home schooling 5 kids and sometimes 4 kids in 4 different grades. I have hosted 3 high school graduations and watched with pleasure as all three went on to some sort of higher education. Today those three are a full time mom, a minister and a commercial diver.
Now I can see the light at the end of the tunnel though. My last one is in 8th grade this year and I only have 2 graduations left to host.
I have been well rewarded for all of my hard work.
So, I always…a lot of things but the thing that I have always done for the last 20 years is home schooled my children and it was well worth it.
