I seriously love my life…as crazy as it is. Such a blessing to be able to homeschool our son. It’s so much FUN.
I hated history growing up. It was so dry and boring. I actually had a teacher in 8th grade who had a pattern to his quizes…T, F, T, F or T, T, F, F. I just had to figure out the pattern with the first few questions, then zone out for the everything else. I made an “A” in that class! I learned nothing. So basically I’m learning history all over again WITH my child…and we both are really enjoying it. I can make it come alive with the different books we use…with field trips. We went to Williamsburg, VA this summer…under the guise of vacation, but it counts as school! How crazy awesome is that!?!?!?!
Today we get to have a civics lesson when I take him with me to vote. An actual hands-on experience about the process of democracy.
Another cool thing about being home with him all the time is that he is seeing how small business works. He’s watching as I grow my biz from the ground up…turning dreams into reality. The good ole’ American dream at work.
I didn’t realize how closely he was watching me until he “presented” us a few weeks ago with a business plan for a comic business. The plan actually made sense and was solid! He’s waiting for his daddy to return from Afghanistan to get the business going, so he’s saving his capital in the meantime. I’m so proud of him.
