As I find myself mid-year in my first home school curriculum I’m reminded of why I believe the Lord calls us to home school. How can I have already started walking a line of compromise in my goals for home schooling?! I see now it will always be difficult to not compare myself to other home schooling moms and to not compare my child to other children. Today as I was looking for a little online encouragement I remembered how important it is to me to be instilling the very best of character and habit training from this…
