Monday, May 21, 2018 marked the end of an era. Actually, 2 eras. For 10 years, I have spent almost every Monday afternoon in our church basement. Why? Because I have been teaching a variety of classes for our local homeschoolers. Most of the classes have been for High School, but I have done a few for the younger kids as well. I have taught Spanish, Biology dissection, Physics, Geology, Geography, Art, writing (we even had a class where everybody wrote a novel), Public Speaking, and several literature classes ranging from Little House on the Prairie to Shakespeare. Monday, we had our last class. We ended the year with a movie and pizza party.
Monday also ended 14 years of homeschooling for me. I have successfully guided all three of my kids through school. An adventure that started with us saying “Let’s try it for a year and see how it goes” has ended with Janelle finishing High School. There were days I thought I was crazy. There were days where I was sure we would never survive. But, here we are. Three adult children.
I wouldn’t trade those years for anything.
