I would often get questioned by family, friends, and others. I would firmly reply with several reasons why I chose that education path for my children, even citing research to back me up. I wanted to prove to them that I was a loving mother who wanted what I thought was best for my children.
Here I am 16 years into homeschooling and I've discovered that I AM CRAZY after all.
I am CRAZY over Jesus. I want Him to be the main focus of our homeschool day. I want our curriculum to be centered around His Word. I want to pray often as a family. I want our family to be His servants when given the opportunity. Jesus is my Lord and Savior and I am crazy over Him.
I am CRAZY over my husband. I am so appreciative of my husband's support of homeschooling. He provides for our family so I can stay home and teach our children. He takes them on field trips. He does science experiments with them. He helps keep them accountable. I am head over heels crazy for this man.
I am CRAZY over my children. I want to be a part of their entire day, every day, not just on weekends and holidays. I love being around them and enjoy every minute I have with them. I have so many fond memories that wouldn't have happened if it weren't for homeschooling. My kids make my heart sing with joy and I am crazy over them.
Even though homeschooling can be challenging for a mother, I feel very blessed to be a crazy homeschool mom and I will continue to be crazy over Jesus, my husband, and my children. I even designed this shirt to publicly announce why I am crazy. (I'm curious if I will get any questions about why I homeschool while wearing it.)
Keep Calm and Homeschool On,
