Homeschooling thought from my oldest daughter

I asked my daughter to write up her thoughts about homeschooling:

----------
I have always enjoyed homeschooling. From being able to finish by noon if I work at it, to taking a plethora of classes, home schooling has always been the best option for me. I was a late reader, so home schooling allowed me to learn at my own pace. Often I will find something that fascinates me, from the Greek Pathogen to space-time, then I just log on to the computer and I will research till my curiosity is sated.

Often on school days I wake up at 5:50 am. Then my dad drives me to an early morning religion class. When I get back, I eat breakfast and then start on my Internet classes: History, English, and Science. When those are completed, I do the homework and then start math. By then it is lunch and all I have to do is music (clarinet and piano), Rosetta Stone Spanish, chores and any miscellaneous thing my mom plans.

This is wonderful stuff! It makes me want to come over and homeschool with you. Um, except I insist on eating breakfast BEFORE I do any work. :]

One of the best things about homeschooling is that our children love it too!

Mrs. C - I think you would be welcome to come by any time, but first check with my wife. :-)

KarenW - how true!
