When people ask why we home ed. I often feel like a rabbit caught in the headlights as there are just so, so many reasons why. It's hard to know where to start in explaining them. My super-top, no. 1 reason remains time, though. I love getting school done quickly and efficiently so that the boys have time just to be; to be with their friends, messing around at home and out in nature. I've been feeling sad lately that their extra-curricular activities are encroaching on this free, unstructured time and I'm determined to keep space in their lives. It's not a negotiable!
