I'm linking up for the last Hip Homeschool Hop of 2010 at The Homeschool Chick! Also, I love linking up with Teach Me Tuesday, at A Bokros Kind of Life. Today I wanted to share what my six year old son put in my stocking this year..... it made all of the adjustments, sacrifices, and sometimes difficult days of homeschooling come into sharp focus for me.
As if my day couldn't get any better, my nine year old daughter declared at dinner (when asked by a family member how school was going?) that she "loves to learn and has the best teacher in the world - mommy!" I can't believe I was EVER worried she and I would butt heads and she would probably learn better from "someone else".
When it comes right down to it, the decision to home educate our children was the RIGHT ONE... and it feels good to hear it from my students sometimes, too!
