Hell No! I Got "F's" in School!

Today was a great day.  A great day to me is feeling successful at three main things.  Here are the three items I juggle (in no particular order.)

1.  Spending quality learning time with the kids (AKA homeschooling)

2.  Working on my art

3.  Cleaning/Cooking

Mind you, these are NOT the most important things to me, just the three tasks that I need to make sure I do every day.  Most important things would be things like, having fun with my kids, loving my husband, being a better person, blah blah blah.

I know I've mentioned our fun History curriculum before.  Today we learned about Alexander the Great.  Luke already knew the knot story!  I sure didn't, and that is the great thing about homeschooling, I get to learn with them!...or like today, FROM them.


After someone finds out that I homeschool, their first question for me is, "So did you major in Education in college?"  I used to feel very self conscious, but now I am proud to answer, "Hell no!  I got "F's" in school!"  I'm not putting down college, I would like my kids to go there (if it's what they need to do to get where they want to be.)  But I know I have an advantage.  I am learning along with my children, not lecturing to them, and I hope that I am a good example to them that you never get to a point where you know everything and you never stop learning.

I've said this before, but, why would I need someone else to tell me that I am qualified to teach my children?  I know their weaknesses and strengths better than anyone.  I know what they need and I've been teaching them since they were born. WORD.
