I had turned to homeschooling in 1997 after my son’s unsatisfactory year in K4. (Both children were diagnosed with ADHD, making sitting still and listening quietly in a classroom quite painful!) I continued to homeschool as a single parent. Jobs I could do at home seemed to find me without my looking for them, as God dropped them in my lap! I homeschooled through 9th grade, after which my son gave traditional public school a try, and my daughter dove into a public online school, where she thrived. I continued to tutor her as needed until she graduated.
Now I am the mother of two young adults. My son is independent and lives a mile from here. He loves gaming, the outdoors, cars, cooking, and challenging authority. My daughter is happily working and saving up for a Honda. With her first income tax return, she bought herself a new laptop, a new desk (with hutch), and a good desk chair. She loves fashion, music, and singing at retirement centers; she wants to take me to Disney World. In 2015, we went on a cruise, where she entertained our friends by singing karaoke!
