The '70s

My wife and I have one tradition for Easter thus far:

We listen to this song on the way to church:

Easter Song: 2nd Chapter of Acts

...which, if you listen to more of the album, reminds you of Bohemian Rhapsody ...because it was recorded in the same era: The mid '70s. Which is big for me because I grew up listening to Larry Norman and not much else musically. In fact, it was Free at Last that finally moved me on.

Needless to say, I wasn't exactly "cool" when it came to my musical choices.

I'm still not.

If I had been in public school, would my musical taste be more refined/mature/informed? Perhaps, though I caught on pretty quickly in high school. And since graduating from college, I've noticed that the radio loops the same songs every couple of hours, so, "I don't dig the radio / I hate what the charts pick..."

1970's music is a minor example of how being at home allowed my dad to influence me. Would I ever have been interested in Harry Chapin or Cat Stevens if I hadn't been home?

Probably not.

The music I like--even old music--is a small reminder of the tremendous opportunities that homeschooling gives us as parents to be involved in the lives of our children.
