You Can Homeschool High School and Still Sleep in Heavenly Peace

You Can Homeschool High School and Still Sleep in Heavenly Peace

Are you happy yet?

Are you happy yet?
Do you want to make your children happy?Proverbs 3:13-18 (NKJV) Happy is the man who finds wisdom, and the man who gains understanding.I love the fact that a man who finds wisdom is happy.  I'm less thrilled that the boy LOOKING for wisdom may be less than happy :-)  Keep up the good work, though.  Homeschooling can be difficult, and rarely do our children say "thank you."  But the fruits of our labor will lead to...

They would giggle when I wrote on the assignment sheet "Play 30 minutes of Masterpiece" or "Play SAT Game." Making homeschooling fun is a great way to instill the love of learning.
