Today was the last day of the Homeschool Curriculim Fair. This is my daughter showing her enthusiasm for a new text book.

“How strange!” might be the response of some people. “What kind of child gets excited over text books?” Well, I will tell you what kind – homeschoolers.

Don’t misunderstand me, for I am not saying that kids in public school have no desire to learn. What I am saying is that my daughter not only loves to learn, but she get’s excited over the opportunity to choose her text book. THAT is a big difference. Unlike school board and government-dictated curriculum, homeschool families actually have a say when it comes to what children learn. That is why so many excel.
