All about life, ups and downs, as we wait for the return.

I just watched an amazing video on Facebook from one of my friends who home schools their 5 kids.  This little 6 year old was spouting off more facts and information then I could remember from my entire elementary school days.  She knew all of the Kindgdoms of life.  She knew the first 5 commandments of the Old Testament.  She knew ancient civilizations, and I could go on and on.  Her dad cut her off on the video because she did so well and could have kept going on.  So smart!  She was just sitting there, hugging her blanket and rattling off all of these amazing facts.  

I think the secret is in the system.  I got to sit in briefly on one of the sessions and the teaching was all done through song.  So, kids could remember lists for memory by singing a song to everything.  I love smart education like that.  For instance, Melissa and Doug toys have a lot of neat educational ideas like that too.  It's way cooler than kids just playing with their Wonder Pets toys.  It's amazing to watch how smart they can be when guided in the right direction. 

I've never been a huge fan of home schooling because growing up, those kids always seemed to have a hard time socially.  But more and more, I am liking the idea for when I have kids.  Especially since it offers up great freedom to your family to travel if need be.
