J is for journey. Homeschooling excellence isn’t something you achieve by following the instructions that come with a purchased curriculum. It’s a journey during which you learn about your children as they learn what they need to know before becoming adults.
It takes time to discover and then encourage your children’s gifts and interests; since gifts often become more apparent with time, and interests often change with time, the journey is a long one. But you’ll find it so fascinating and enjoyable to watch your children grow and mature in an environment that lets them do so at their own pace.
Homeschooling is a journey that can benefit your children immensely, and one that you’ll always remember.
