Well many of my friends and family know this about me but I was home schooled for a good portion of my schooling. This being said, I am now about 90-10 going to home school. To me it is scary but I have put a lot of prayer and thought into this and I think it is what I am going to do. I always thought I would become a school teacher, I even started with a major in education then went to history thinking maybe then I could go on to get my law degree and not teach but with my kids nearing the age (not really) but nearing the age when I have to think about where I want to be when they get into school and what I want to do for pre-school, I am now pretty much sure I will be home schooling. I know it is controversial and I can see both sides of the argument. I have one thing in my favor (some may disagree) but I think I turned out well adjusted and socially able to hold my own. I do not plan on home schooling all the way through but at least through elementary then sending them on their way with a strong sense of family, moral values, and a strong academic base in hopes that they will choose the right based on a stronger testimony of the Gospel and its values. There are things that are being taught in school at too young of an age, and I think that some shelter from today's society is not harmful to very young children. I wanted to get this out there to see what you all think, (it won't change my mind, but it may give me ideas on what to work on when I do home school to make sure that my little ones are socially stable always) Don't worry they will all be in sports and music programs while being home schooled. I loved music and sports in school, I didn't play in elementary but I know that in today's world to compete you have to start much earlier than middle school to make a middle school or high school team.
