Why We Started Homeschooling

The Beginning

When I mention to people that we homeschool I typically see the same reaction. I see their eyes go big before they can correct themselves, contort their face into a smile, and say, “Wow, that’s so nice!” Then I see a bit of panic as they try to figure out what to say next. Have you ever been in that situation- someone gives you an answer you’re not prepared for? That’s me when someone says they don’t want kids. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a totally legitimate lifestyle; I just haven’t found a good response to it because it’s not something I relate to very well.
