Stories for the Homeschool Heart–

Here’s a little story for the homeschool heart:

I found this old photo of my earlier days of homeschooling- shortly after I discovered my own ‘homeschool heart”. I think we were a couple years into it at this point-maybe three- and I asked the photographer who took my daughter’s First Communion picture and our family photo to snap one of us on the front porch to forever document our chosen homeschooling adventure.

I remember a couple things distinctly about the day:

1.One son kept closing his eyes. After many shots like this I told the photographer, “The baby is happy. Just take it. This is real life- the way it was today. I’ll remember.”

2. We grabbed all sorts of school books to scatter around. I didn’t want my toes to show. (I can’t exactly tell you why other than that feet seem very personal to me.)

3. I felt so happy, almost like my heart would burst.

Three kids later I have to say I feel the same way.

That’s what children and homeschooling do to you!
