Texas Home School Coalition Review

of sitting at a desk, doing page after page of work-
sheets, but it certainly does not have to be that way.
After all, one of the most wonderful aspects about
home schooling is having options—flexibility to offer
new experiences.
As a new school year begins, remember that we
not only want to teach our children the Three R’s,
we also want to instill in them a profound love of
learning. We are talking about taking the time to cre-
ate new opportunities and learning experiences to
show our children all that God’s world has to offer.
In the grand scheme of things, does it really matter
if we attend a field trip instead of finishing the last
lesson in the chapter? Both are educational but in
different ways. Our best advice to home schoolers,
both established and new, is to allow children to en-
joy their education and their lives. Do not get caught
up in such a regimented rut that you fail to do any-
thing fun! Our sons may not have finished every
single lesson in every book, but they have learned
something far more valuable: how to live.
We are truly honored to have been selected as
THSC’s support group leaders of the year, and we
wish to thank God for allowing us to guide our sons,
our families for supporting us every step of the way,
our sons for becoming the fine young men they are
today, and our friends at HAVEN for showing us their
overwhelming love. Here’s to a new year of love and
laughter together!
