My Homeschool Dream

Every year, I enjoy homeschooling more. Every year I see my children becoming a little more like the student I dream of them becoming. It is much slower than I thought it would be, but it is happening and it seems to be a deep part of who they are, not just memorized for a test or written for a one time report.

I dream of my children
-reading for pleasure and information.
-writing to communicate what is inside of them.
-working with numbers confidently as the need arises.
-participating in the arts without a fear of failure, but willing to take correction and work hard at what is important
to them.
-seeing all events in history as part of His story.
-seeing God's hand in the order and beauty in the world around us.

This really motivated me to work on putting our educational goals into words, I need to work on that!

I love the comment about them becoming the students you dream of (slowly), I can relate on both counts!
