We are going to home school our daughter

Yep, we are going to be one of those "crazy" families that teach their children at home. Robyn is looking forward to it. Can you believe it? An eleven year old who wants to be home schooled? Anyway, more on that to come later. In the mean time, here are some very encouraging quotes.

" I suppose it is because nearly all children go to school nowadays and have things arranged for them that they seem so forlornly unable to produce their own ideas. "--Agatha Christie

"Thank goodness I was never sent to school; it would have rubbed off some of the originality."-- Beatrix Potter

"Homeschooling and public schooling are as opposite as two sides of a coin. In a homeschooling environment, the teacher need not be certified, but the child MUST learn. In a public school environment, the teacher MUST be certified, but the child need NOT learn."-- Gene Royer

" I never teach my pupils; I only attempt to provide the conditions in which they can learn."-- Albert Einstein

Pray for us as we explore all our homeschooling options.
