prmenrs......smart Dad you got there! :chuckle I never even thought of that one all these years, but it sure makes perfect sense. :kiss
joyflnoyz........if I were raising a family today, I would homeschool them myself, too. There's NO WAY I went through a combined total of 27 months of carrying my babies, and going through a combined total of 33+ hours of labor....not to mention the 24 hour lag between the second births start and end of labor where I eventually had to be induced because my labor stopped two hours into the moment...just to have my kids subjected to the drama within the school systems today by angry kids who have a gripe or two or three against society.......for whatever reason.
No maam.....I would be their teacher......and no one else today!
One of my younger sisters homeschooled both her sons, and they did quite well through school. She made boo-koo sacrifices to be able to homeschool them, too, but to her......it was all worth those sacrifices. So......hats off to all of you who are homeschooling your children. I'm sure you catch a lot of flack for doing so, but society will complain about anything and almost everything today, so don't mind them. Keep up the good work! :kiss
