WooHoo - DONE!!!

Friday, April 09, 2010

Woohoo! I'm done!! I have just finished the last bit of paperwork/grading for my youngest daughter. I have completed 18 years of homeschooling!!! My daughter will graduate on May 13th, but all her paperwork is done and ready to be mailed to CHESS (the satellite school we were under)!!

I have loved homeschooling. It has been hard and there were a few days where I just wanted to give up, but I stayed the course. My husband and I are proud of what our children have accomplished. All four of the kids did the Honors program. The oldest graduated 4th in his class with highest honors, my two older daughters graduated Salutatorian with highest honors. We have yet to see what my youngest does, but I'm sure she will be up there also as many of her semesters she had straight A's.

Homeschooling is a little like my weight loss. It has been (and will be) a long journey and has had many bumps. But, I will stay the course and one day I will be able to celebrate that I have reached my goal!

    Wow, that is an accomplishment! I really wish I could do the same, but have not been able to convince my hubby :-( I am however working part-time now so that I can provide our kids additional support with homework and such and their grades are already getting better as a result.

    Congrats to all your kids too, they should be proud of themselves!

    That is awesome! I have thought so many times that I wanted to homeschool mine. Right now, that is not possible finanacially, as I need to work, but man, I so admire those that can do it...and for 18 years! That is a long time. You deserve a vacation! Ha!

    Awesome, great job with the homeschooling. As I told you, I think, that my daughter homeschools my two grandsons, it is quite a chore but she loves it and wouldn't have it any other way. You've done a wonderful job! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Great job!! The best thing you can do for you children is to give them a good solid foundation for life. You can be proud that you have done that! Is she off the college? Will your house now be empty? God Bless you both.

    Congratulations to you both! Most parents are so proud of their children graduating, but most of us didn't have nearly as much involvement in the process! You've done an amazing job -- emoticon
