I was going to blog about calculus, music videos and learning. But then I read Kate Fridkis' I used to be the prettiest girl in the world.
After that, calculus had to wait
Homeschooling has incredible benefits of all stripes. But I don't remember reading anything that so poignantly captured the confidence homeschooling offers your children. We can discuss socialization and peer pressure and academics and creativity and love of learning, but all of those things come together and are overshadowed by the beauty of your children enjoying who they are.
As I mentioned in the comments, I had a very similar experience. That is probably why Kate's post resonated with me so much. But, as a guy, I wasn't too interested in being pretty. But I was AWESOME.
Please, go read about how homeschooling lets your children be pretty (or AWESOME).
Bummed that I didn't write about calculus and music videos? Perhaps next week. There's a bunch of other great stuff to read and watch and enjoy in my Other Posts of Note... because I'm that AWESOME.
But not quite that awesome.
