As you may have read in other posts on this blog, I plan to homeschool my children one day. I do not have children yet, but I have already spent many years researching schools, private and public. After not being impressed my our local schools, I decided to look into homeschooling. I was really pleased to find out that homeschooling is actually a lot more common now days. My husband was homeschooled until high school and then he went to a private Catholic high school. I spent my elementary school years in a Catholic school, middle school years in a public middle school, and then I went back to private education at a Catholic high school. So between the two of us, we’ve covered it all. I truly believe that the education I got at my private schools immensely surpassed the education I got at my middle school. However, with that being said, I had some unbelievable teachers there who truly cared about the students and held us to a high standard. It just didn’t meet my expectations coming from the private elementary school I attended. I have been blessed to enough to have the opportunity to be able to stay at home with my future kids, and I fully intend to do so. I am passionate about learning and children, so this is my current goal.
Did I mention I was passionate about children? There’s a place in my heart that swells every time I think about child development and all those children who haven’t been so fortunate. I plan to adopt one day and I know it won’t be an easy journey. I follow many blogs that talk about their journey with adoption. They are both inspiring and heartbreaking. It takes a special family to adopt and go through the roller coaster of emotions and trials and tribulations that come along with it. Our world is a much better place because of these types of people.
