A Long Childhood


Ring-Around-the-Rosie...Plain and Simple Joys

One of the best benefits my children have derived from homeschooling is the blessing of a long childhood.  They don’t know it, but I do.  They’re not too sophisticated for the simple things, imaginative play, and children younger than themselves.  I love seeing this in their lives.  The transition to youth activites has gone very smoothly and happened at the naturally appropriate time of life–around 12-13 years old.  I think that having enough time with them early on has made me more comfortable and confident with this new stage in their lives. I didn’t expect this side-benefit of homeschooling, but I’ll take it!
