No Greater Joy

There is (almost) no greater feeling as a mother than to see your kids learning and having fun. It is amazing when your kids have a love for learning, and to know that you helped ( alongside of the Lord) to instill that love is an amazing feeling.
It is amazing to see your children learn to read, master arithmetic, find their passion, and know that you were there alongside of them teaching, and learning yourself.
I will always treasure the moments cuddled up on the couch, teaching my son to read, or the times with Kayleen while we are reading history, and it evolved into a biblical discussion. There are so many moments that I will always treasure, and I am eternally grateful for the great privilege of be able to homeschool my children. 
I am truly blessed.

Isn't it beautiful? These times are fleeting and so precious. Enjoying the relationships, the comraderie among the siblings makes being with them a joy. Lovely post.

Thank you Kristine.
I just can't imagine it any other way.
I really do enjoy homeschooling; it is fun, at least most of the time. LOL

"The democracy will cease to exist
when you take away from those who are willing to work
and give to those who would not." --Thomas Jefferson
Martin Luther: b. 1483-1546: "I am very much afraid that schools will prove to be the great gates of hell unless they diligently labor in explaining the Holy Scriptures, engraving them in the hearts of youth. I advise no one to place his child where the Scriptures do not reign paramount. Every institution in which men are not increasingly occupied with the Word of God must become corrupt."
