...I actually put a picture of myself on here!? I still don't really like it, but at least it's acceptable, compared to most pictures of me. Mike joined "facebook" this weekend, and we've reconnected with some people that we'd lost touch with, who may or may not be reading this. So again it is time to make the request...if I know you and you read this fairly regularly, I'd love it if you'd let me know!
We got completely soaked at EPCOT last night. At one point, I heard this mother telling her family how all winter when she wasn't busy at work, she was checking Disney websites planning for their summer, once in a lifetime, vacation. Then there's us..."hey let's meet at Disney tonight," the thing is I still think we appreciate it as much as those people that plan for it all year (maybe more)!
School has started, and so have the annual conversations with public and private school mothers who are already (less than one week into it) becoming disenchanted with their child's schooling and are considering homeschooling. I'm attempting to perfect my answers to why and how we homeschool, but it is so hard to explain. It is just who we are. The socialization issue is especially hard to explain. Not only do my kids and I have tons of friends, we are so closely involved with so many of them on a daily basis, our friends, too, are part of who we are and what we do. I often find myself sending people to my blog so they can see how much we "get to socialize." To borrow a quote I've heard from others...Yes, socialization is a huge problem for homeschoolers, we do so much socializing, we don't always have enough time to actually school!!
