We decided to try homeschooling for one year when my oldest daughter was in 5th grade. One year turned into four years, but when it was time for high school we were nervous that we might be ruining our child’s progress, so we enrolled her in the local public high school. She excelled in her honors classes and was well-liked by the staff and students. But after that year we decided to return to homeschooling and enrolled in a program called Cedar Brook Academy. Because my daughter wanted to participate in producing a yearbook, they gave her the opportunity to start the first yearbook, giving her support and encouraging student participation.
Homeschooling through high school not only gave our daughter advanced academic opportunities, but creative working opportunities as she started teaching piano lessons and accomplished various volunteer work.
Along with academic excellence and a variety of learning experiences, the Lord used homeschooling to give all of my daughters a heart for the things and people of God and the joy of family. Throughout these years, our theme verse remained Matthew 6:33.
