Something that is important to me in my choice to homeschool my kids has nothing to do with statistics and everything to do with my heart.

I have statistical reasons for my choice ad infinitum, but when it comes down to the brass tacks of things, I love children and I know mine are going to be a bit more special to me than most. Call me selfish, but this is how I feel.

I want to be the one to get to tell them about Jesus and see their eyes light up when they realize how much He loves them. I want to be the one to teach them their ABC’s and see their excitement as they string their first sentences together. I want to see them grow, succeed and be their for their triumphs and their downfalls.

I want to be the one to comfort them over a scraped knee and when they go through a rough time. I want to be able to teach them about all of the amazing things that I learned. I want to be able to be there when they get to discover the things that make them excited. When they figure out the dreams that God has placed in their hearts, and I want to be the one to get to encourage that and watch them blossom in their gifts and talents.

I want to be the one to encourage them and push them to be better. I want to let them learn from my mistakes and become great leaders in this world for the King of Kings.

What are your thoughts?
