Most of the time, when you begin a journey or new path in life, you plan and prepare. You find out just where you are headed and how. These actions help alleviate most shocking experiences as you know generally what to expect. However, if we are all honest, there is usually something along the journey which shocks, or surprises us.
Homeschooling is no different.
So, today, we are asking and answering the question: What has surprised you most about homeschooling?
Aurie ~ That I don't have to do everything all at once, and it's okay to take a sick day now and then.
Beth ~ The amount of time that I have had to spend attempting to convince family and other professionals that homeschooling is best for us. I really think they will just have to see the fruit in order to believe.
Marla ~ I was surprised to learn how many people homeschool. Before we started teaching our girls at home, I thought that homeschooling was only for a few crazy people. However, in the past few years, I have met so many families that choose to homeschool in some capacity.
