I never said a word about home schoolers, or public school families. Don't put words in my mouth.
The point, is that the Gardasil vaccine was mandated by the government. It was an intrusion on basic human rights to force this on the people. The fact that you could fill out a form to assert your right to free choice did not make it any less odious.
It was a bad move on Perry's part, as it was a basic violation of essential individual rights.
For the record, my wife and I have home schooled our four children since day one.
Great to meet you, Windflier! That is great you have home schooled!
Our little guys have all grown up, but we home schooled all three of ours from the very beginning up to college. Our oldest daughter graduated from a Christian college, got married, and now owns a Christian dance studio that is doing very well. Our middle daughter is in college, is married, and has a baby now, but she's still working hard to finish college still. Our "baby" son is in college now too.
When we first started home schooling, I used to think a private Christian school would be the best. I was thinking "of course little ME couldn't do something like they could." But the Lord never let us have enough money to do that throughout the years. So... we kept home schooling.
After many years, it dawned on me that we had not been LIMITED by the Lord. We had been BLESSED by the Lord.
He kept us JUST tight enough that we had to turn down the idea of a private school in so many of those first few years... but it ended up being that situation that gave us many years of learning, living, and enjoying life together.
Our middle daughter, the one that has a child of her own now, says she is going to home school as well.
I'm sure you have experienced this too, but I've always shared with others that when you home school, no matter HOW long you do it, you will have those days when you second guess yourself. Should I be doing this? Am I doing something I should not? Am I doing something wrong for my kids? Am I going to fall apart here?
Then you just get through that one day and face another, and you keep going.
The important thing, I tell others, is that you'll always have doubts on some days. Some days will be bad, and the doubting NEVER goes away. It takes a lot of patience, a lot of love, and a lot of forgiving, and that's just what we need to give OURSELVES! LOL
Anyway, glad again to meet you, Windflyer!
Looking forward to seeing more of you!
