One of the things I love most about homeschooling is how much my kids have taught me.
Yesterday was a great example. In the middle of all the chocolate Easter eggs and playing with their dad my little 3 year old discovered a snail on the window of our kitchen door. For the next hour he was totally engrossed. He watched the snail, had a lovely conversation with the snail (warned the snail about the possible dangers in our courtyard) and called big sister over to come and say hello to the snail. And I got to witness all of it.
Before we started our homeschooling adventure I am not sure if I would have taken the time to enjoy this with him. But I did. I sat with him and we shared a lovely moment. It is moments like this that I cherish the most, so even thought at times I get stressed and worried I am thankful that I am getting to share this wonderful adventure with my kids. I am very lucky that we blindly stumbled into this wonderful challenge of educating our kids and sharing with them all the new and wonderful things that they discover.
