    I chose "frequent PCS moves" We have lived in three different countries and 14 different houses so the choice to homeschool seemed like the only way we could add some regularity to our children's lives. Last year, for the first time, we completed an actual three year commitment at one duty assignment and by the second year every member of our family was ready to leave and continue our adventure at a new place, lol! Homeschooling also allows us to explore and experience our new areas

    I chose to home school for several different reasons. For starters, her birthday falls in Decemeber so she missed the Kindergarten cut off date. Also, it allows her to learn at her own pace. We are currently stationed in Turkey and I have found that the language is a little intimidating to her. I think this will build her confidence and prepare her for one of the many international schools that we would love for her to attend.

    Wow, Turkey? That must be an adventure! Yes, I know that we all have many reasons we homeschool- whenever someone asks me why we choose too, I can't help but list about five

    I chose homeschooling for quite a few reasons. First of all, I was not able to find a good "fit" for my daughter. While there were several great international private schools here (Okinawa, Japan), my daughter just didn't thrive in the 2 schools we tried. Also, my daughter was recently diagnosed with Aspergers and homeschooling allows for other activities/therapies that I feel will benefit her more than a traditional classroom.
