Homeschooling is Reward Enough

These are two wonderful essays about homeschooling:

Mr. Pointy Nose

Mr. Pointy Nose Returns

I can completely relate to homeschooled children knowing the proper use of terms and the logic behind the science. Our daughters impressed their father this weekend with their knowledge. Our almost 8-yr-old daughter explained what the small weights were attached to the ceiling fan blades and why they were there and one of the twins (6 1/2 yrs old) explained that static electricity made the stray hairs on a brush all stand up on end. Then our other twin picked up a book and read it cover to cover without any prompting to do so. She just wanted her daddy to know she could read well.

I wouldn't give up homeschooling for all the money in the world!!! What have your children learned today?
