I Homeschool Because Every Day Is Worth It

I homeschool because every day is worth it.

reasons to homeschoolThe good ones.

The bad ones.

The in between ones.

When they cry out, “NO!” in unison because I close the read aloud and they want to know what happens next.

When I recommend a book I loved as a child and they devour it and ask for more.

The days when they are grouchy and overtired and fighting me every step of the way.

When they seem to have forgotten every thing they’ve learned.

When their eyes light up and they become inspired to read or write or learn just a little more.

When they create an intricate map of an imaginary world for a story they are writing.

When they tear apart the house, forget where the laundry goes, leave dishes wherever they happened to be.

When they fight and fuss and whine.

When one thing after another goes wrong and the day is derailed.

When I see their passion and that focused energy that means their entire mind and body is set on a single goal.

When they make me a cup of luke warm coffee that is too strong and has too much sugar, but still I drink it and enjoy if, if only for their proud smiles.

Every day is worth it because every day we are learning, laughing and loving. Every day is worth it because every day we are together.

This is part of the Blogging Through the Alphabet Challenge, where I am sharing some homeschool encouragement, from A to Z! Check out what I’ve written so far!

Your “NO!!!” when they want to know… my lad has been doing that a lot lately and it is just so FINE…so very very fine. 🙂


“Because we are together”
The best part of homeschooling!

You hit the nail on the head! Thank you for sharing!


Well…. some days sure don’t feel worth it, but collectively they are. 🙂


Not always when you are in them, but sometimes those end up being the really important ones later. 🙂


I love these posts. So true. So true.


Thanks, Lori! I have been enjoying them more than I thought I would. Of course, I’m not to X, Y, Z, yet. That’s going to take some creativity!

Awesome! This is my 17th year of homeschooling and I retire this year after my son graduates. It’s been an amazing adventure but some days have been difficult. It is worth it though!!!


It is an amazing adventure! I’m graduating my first this spring, but I still have five to go!
