120831-2 So Glad I Homeschool

Public school started Monday. MY school starts next Friday. Someone sent me this today, and it is going on my list of reasons to homeschool!

Student Locator Program

While religious reasons do not factor into my decision to homeschool, these verses do come to mind:

Proverbs 22:6 
Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.

1Thessalonians 5:3 
For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.

Thank God no one is putting a locator tag on my children. They aren't perfect, but they do tell me what they do -- even the bad stuff! (I try not to freak TOO much.) BTW, I have a homeschool grad in college. Will this locator stuff follow students into college? Or will sense prevail and they throw out this insane notion?

Well no one is putting a tag on my kid either and he goes to public school.

One of my friends posted this on facebook. I think it's a great idea... for the dog! As a new home school year approaches, I loved the confirmation that I am doing the right thing that this report provided.

"A homeschooling parent in Canada recently sent me a letter which ended with a quote by Roque Dalton: 'May we keep hauling up the morning.' I like the metaphor of a sailing ship upon the sea for parenthood and for homeschooling. There are no completely reliable charts, and so we must often navigate without them. We must learn for ourselves how to find the currents, avoid the reefs and storms, and enter the harbors. As we haul up the sails to go on sailing, so we haul up the morning for the adventures of each successive day. There is room for everybody on this ocean, and there is no pilot's license required or worth having. We must trust ourselves and our children. May each of us keep hauling up the morning."
