Why Do We Love Homeschooling?

 Just Some Of The Reasons…

This year marks 12 years of homeschooling for our family. It has suited us well first in Zambia, then with all the military moves, and now here in Nairobi. Though Grace and Benjamin have enjoyed this past year at the local American mission school, Grace is eager to come back to homeschooling for her senior year this Fall. Katie, Josiah, and Isaac are excelling at their home education and each at their own pace.  The neat thing is that we as parents can encourage their strengths, strengthen their weak areas, and love them like no one else. No matter where kids attend school, learning and growing should ALWAYS be happening at home…
