R is for real life. Real life isn’t spent in one room with 30 other people born within a year of your birth. Real life is:
- spent in the real world, meeting people of all ages and getting to know them.
- It’s spent with newborns as well as the elderly.
- It’s spent actively learning about the world around you instead of learning about it from a textbook.
- It’s spent making meals and cleaning house as well as learning to add up the cost of groceries or how to read a restaurant menu.
Homeschooled kids are blessed because, unlike their publicly schooled age-mates, they get to be out in the real world learning about real life.
