Do Not Let Anyone Push You Into Homeschooling You Have to Jump On Your Own!

I believe there are a handful of people who contact me every summer in hopes that I will talk them into homeschooling. They are stricken with indecision and the approaching end of summer break is like that lifeguard’s whistle signaling time is almost up.

Someday I hope to repay the gift, if I have never seen your baby be awesome. But don’t be creepy and keep a tally or anything. I do like Netflix.
