Y is for years. Your children are home with you for a limited number of years. When they’re little, those years stretch ahead so far that it makes you feel like you have plenty of time before your children are grown and on their own. But those of us whose children are now young adults can vouch for the fact that the child-rearing years went pretty quickly, all things considered.
By homeschooling your children, you get to enjoy their childhood: all of it, not just before school when they’re rushing out to catch the bus, or after school when they’re tired and cranky. You get the best of them each day.
Someday you’ll look back at all your fond memories and be thankful that you were there to see your children catch on to reading, make art masterpieces and master fractions. You will treasure your homeschooling years.
