Additionally our family did and does not support our decision to homeschool but have become more vocal this year. In the last week alone I have received, several phone calls and emails (apparently we were the topic of a group discussion) pleading for me not to homeschool. New homeschoolers this will happen but I have found that my energy is best spent on doing what I know I need to do, rather than spending time justifying others fears.
As homeschooler must remember that you are on a mission, a calling to take part of a wonderful journey. You set the tone, your attitude sets the stage for learning.
I will not fill my life or blog with negativity, because that's not how I want to live my life.
To borrow a phrase from Randy Pausch, a computer science professor whose "Last Lecture" has inspired millions. “You just have to decide if you’re going to be a Tigger or an Eeyore.”
