We all know that there are a lot of misconceptions about homeschoolers, and, while most of those tend to be centered around the kids, there are a lot of misconceptions about homeschool moms (and dads), as well. I’m often surprised to hear some of the things that people who don’t homeschool think about homeschooling parents. I guess I shouldn’t be. I used to be a public school mom (for two years) and I imagine that I thought some of these things, too, though it’s been so long that I really can’t recall for sure.
Anyway, I’d like to make some homeschool mom confessions (at least, as relates tothis homeschool mom). Oh, and the title just sounded fun. No negative implications intended there at all. Some of my best friends and favorite relatives are public school parents.
There is just something so very special about him.
Maybe it has to do with everything he has been through. He has such perseverance to accomplish whatever it is he sets his mind to.
I just could not imagine my life without him.
When I think back to a few years ago, when we thought we may lose him, my heart is overwhelmed with gratefulness that God saw fit to allow him to remain with us. What an incredible gift Gideon is to our family!
