I can’t believe we’re almost done with homeschooling. Still have some subjects to complete, but I’m beginning to have mixed feelings… sad that it will be over, yet excited about things to come. My girls are grown (22 and 18), and it’s becoming a new season of life for our family. Did I homeschool perfectly? No, definitely not. Just ask my girls! Are there gaps in their education? Yes. But did they learn HOW to learn? Yes, I think they did. Can they read and write and reason well? Yes. Do they function well around all ages and all kinds of people? I think they do. Do they approach all of life from a Biblical wordview? Yes.
We did what God called us to do… keep our girls out of public school, teach them at home, and raise them in a strong church. What I did not cover or accomplish with my girls while I taught them at home, God will certainly cover and accomplish… in His time.
They will one day understand the sacrifices made for them, and the time invested in them. Although I haven’t been perfect, I serve a God who is. I praise the Lord today, for choosing someone like me, to educate our girls at home. Through homeschooling, He has done a work in us all. It has been one of the most challenging, yet most rewarding experiences of my life. I wouldn’t trade it for anything!
