We enjoy doing school this way. We are comprehensive in our approach. We want our children to have a well rounded, thorough education. We believe they are receiving it. They test well on regular school tests and standardized tests.
I love having them home. Yes, I long for a day of peace, quiet and solitude, but I wouldn't trade this time with them. No, I don't have much patience. Yes, I yell at my children. I'm not some super mom, I'm just normal, and we homeschool.
