ABC's of Homeschooling - G

As I sit here thinking of what G stands for in our homeschool, I think of a few words. Like God, Gifts, Giving and Grandparents to name a few.

God lead us to homeschool our children.

Gifts that God has given us each day that we spend with our children.

Giving more to our family and to others in the way we live our lives.

But right now G for Grandparents seem to stand out the most. Between Nana living with us for a few months and my father, Pa who takes time to show our children all the details of a fixing something.

This is a picture that Biggun took of Pa when he got his camera. 

Recently, my son Biggun, called me and said "Mom I can't get the lawn mower started." I respond with leave it and either your Dad or I will look at it when we get home. (Biggun was home w/ Nana, we don't let him mow w/o an adult home.) He then called me back and said "Mom I got it started!" I asked him what did you do? He responded with, " The last time time it did not start Pa was here and he did this, this and this. So I did what Pa did last time, and it worked."  He sounded so happy and surprised.

Mostly G stands for GRATEFUL! Grateful for all of the above.

  1. What a wonderful collection of "G" words to celebrate homeschooling.

    Sounds like Pa made quite the impact on Biggun!
