I recently found this post and think it should be required reading for all homeschooling parents AND all who know homeschoolers AND anyone critical of homeschooling. So, basically, EVERYONE. Enjoy.
A post from Melissa at Here in the Bonny Glen.
Incidentally, I did not realize it until I'd read the whole post, but Melissa is the author of some books I have been pouring through. They are the prequels to the Little House series (which Rhubarb and I are enjoying together) and are an enjoyable read.
