The one significant thing I feel most grateful for is that I have been able to homeschool my children. For all of Arthur’s life he was with me, everyday. Not in some class room being raised by strangers for eight hours a day. We have so many amazing memories. As the new school year approaches, it saddens me how many families are anxious for their children to be away from them. Homeschooling is not for everyone, I admit this, it is a choice. But don’t be so quick to wish them away even for a few hours a day. You will never get those hours back. They will grow up and have lives of their own before you know it. Cherish these times.
