Homeschooling is such an individual choice, and we all have our reasons, don't we? I'm going to post a little something here that I clipped out of a magazine or booklet of some kind - I really don't remember - but for years now it's been hanging on my fridge to help me remember why I'm homeschooling.

"If the schools were perfect, I would still
homeschool my children - because it isn't
about school.

It's about families taking their children back
and educating them as they see best.

It's about giving birth to a child and loving
that child enough to want to nurture him
and be a part of his life until he no longer
needs you.

It is the natural thing to do. School is only a
substitute for the real thing."
- Kathleen McCurdy


Maybe that didn't do much for you, but I thought it was just beautiful and it really spoke to me. That's why I'm homeschooling my kids.

How about YOU?
