There is a difference in case you didn’t know. . . I hope others, whose impression of homeschooling families have only come from their interaction with homeschoolERS, catch a vision for the better possibilities.
The only homeschooling family I knew for the first 20 years of my life were definitely homeschoolERS. Praise God that I now know hundreds of homeschoolED kids who are extremely intelligent and well-adjusted. The existence of these “normal” (but really so much better than normal!) kids helped me to not be fearful of homeschooling my kids. I’m extremely excited about the time I’ll get to spend with them in the coming years exploring, reading, writing, and learning together.
