79. If you are living your life to the fullest, your not missing out on anything!
Someone recently said to me "Oh - I didn't realize the kids got out."
As if by home schooling the two of you we have locked you in our home, not to interact with the outside world?
That made me giggle because I'm sure if most could see our calendar they might suggest we keep you home more!
A big concern of the public is that you two are missing out on the "school experience."
My first thought is "missing out" on some stuff is one of the core reasons we home school you. You are missing out on overcrowded classrooms. Underpaid teachers. You are missing out on rigorous schedules, 9 hour school days, homework.
What you are not missing out on, is life experiences. Social experiences. Some of those are school related, some are not.
Sweet Daddy and I balance your education with plenty of opportunities to explore the world around us.
Some days, such as the one in this photo, involves us participating in a school experience - this day was Field Day.
If you are living your life to the fullest, taking advantage of all your opportunities, you are not missing out on anything!
