This month “Learning with Boys” turns 1 year old and it’s been 3 years since we made the decision to homeschool.
Today I want to say thank you!
First a huge thank you to my husband and boys for being willing to share our story!
Thank you to everyone who has taken the time to read even one post on this blog or make a comment. It is such a delight for me to write and share.
Thank you to the pioneers of the homeschooling effort. Thank you for having the convection and courage to follow a path less travelled. I know it wasn’t easy. I know you faced real difficulties.
Thank you to the families who invited us to dinner and showed us that homeschooling doesn’t produce weird unsocialized children. Actually, thank you to all the families of children who had us to their homes back when we were a childless professional couple.
Thank you to all the bloggers out there who share encouragement, ideas, and humor. You are an amazing community! I really enjoy visiting the sites of large families, small families, un-schoolers and those who follow a classical approach. I learn so much from all of you!
Thank you to all of you who visit the blogs and leave encouraging comments. So many areas of the internet are full of strife and people needing to prove their points. Among the homeschool community, I’ve found one of the most diverse AND encouraging groups of people around. Thank you for every time you stick to the principle “if you don’t have something nice to say, don’t say anything at all.”
I’m thankful for those of you who express what might be a minority viewpoint or share cultural or religious traditions that are unfamiliar to me. It helps me learn and grow.
Thank you to all of you who aren’t homeschoolers, but stop by the blog anyway. I hope you find inspiration.
