Homeschooling = 16,380 more hours I get to enjoy spending time with and instructing my kids.
That is A LOT of hours! I'm so thankful that we live in a country where we have the freedom to make our own educational choices and that I also have a husband who believes in how much of an impact this decision will make in our children's lives.
I am not saying that homeschooling is the only way to educate your children, I'm simply pointing out one of the many benefits.
