Why did you decide to homeschool your children?
By the time our first child was born, my husband and I were friends with (or had become acquainted with) numerous families who homeschooled. We saw that it was a positive experience for them and decided to do it ourselves. At the time, we had numerous reasons for doing so, including wanting to ensure that our children were always in a safe/loving environment, wanting to have a flexible schedule (for traveling "home" to visit family), and wanting the ability to teach in ways that are not possible in the average public/private school. Over the years, our family grew from one child to three and we moved many, many times. Looking back, I'm very thankful that we did commit to homeschooling. It kept our older two children from having to attend many different schools.
