Thanks. I am actually married to a really great guy, and he and I have talked extensively about homeschooling; we have decided that when we have kids that we will either put them in a private Christian school or homeschool them. Unfortunately, we have no idea what state we might end up in, since he will be ordained as a Lutheran (LCMS) pastor in May 2013.
Usually the first call is picked for you by the seminary.
Thanks for the advice, though. When we started dating I mentioned that I someday wanted to homeschool my children and he started spouting “homeschool kids are sheltered and have no idea what the real world is like blah blah blah...”
Yeah, he’s lucky I didn’t dump him on the spot. He’s seen the light since then. :)
Well at least you straightened him out!
TalonDJ and I met on FreeRepublic; our homeschool backgrounds was one of the things we liked about each other right off. So nice to be debating how we will handle homeschooling and not whether we will! Our little girl isn’t quite three yet and already excited about doing “school” with mommy.
I would encourage you to stand up for homeschooling. Even private Christian schools can’t match the devotion, love, and potential that a homeschooling mom and dad can give!
