Why We Homeschool

"Why do we homeschool?" is a question that I often receive. The short answer is we enjoy the freedom that homeschooling provides for us.

The freedom I mentioned is that we can take family vacations when it is right for my family. When my son was in the public school system I would have to get "approval" from the school district that he would miss a period of school.

I have always had this urge to homeschool. I wanted to badly but believed that I wasn't capable of teaching my child. How wrong was I to believe that? I would take my youngest to the playground or on mini hiking trips during the spring and fall days. I kept thinking about how I wished my oldest was here, being outdoor, not stuck in a classroom, and spending time with us on these beautiful days.

With those thoughts in my mind almost every day three years ago, I finally took the plunge and pulled him out of public school at the end of his 3rd-grade year. I have enjoyed almost every minute of it.

So I homeschool because I like being around my children and the freedom that comes with being able to go outdoors on beautiful days to when we can go on vacation.
