My family and I have chosen to home educate our children. We have many reasons for choosing this course. My number one reason is that I believe that family should come first and that placing value on the family unit is most important. Next, we want to instill a love of learning in our children - that learning occurs anytime and any place. I enjoy following my children's leads and having the flexibility to explore on a whim. I want to truly know my children - we need to learn to appreciate each other's differences and find ways to get along - get through the day and thus, develop a very close bond. I love being with my children and watching them grow and learn each day.
