We homeschool because we prayed about it, asked for godly counsel and that's when we jumped off the private Lutheran school train for G1 a few months into his 1st grade year. We homeschool because the Daddy works for the largest airline in the world and we can take low cost field trips that include planes. We homeschool because we want the best for our kids and this individual attention is often how their "buckets are filled." We want our children to know, love and serve a RISEN SAVIOR. We've seen how direct teaching methods using their own learning styles allows them to display godly character. And, we encourage our children to reflect our love of learning in their own lives. Turned off the cable, purged the extra stuff and learned to pack for a lifetime of learning. It's a good thing.
