Homeschool is not always as easy as it may seem to other students. It, like everything, has its pros and cons. One of the most difficult elements of being homeschooled is my struggle to make really good friends because I don't see others my age nearly as often as most non homeschoolers. Mostly, I just have friends within our church and youth group. That is not bad, just not always the easiest. Even then I sometimes feel left out when they start talking about school and I have no idea what they are talking about. I'm certain you other homeschoolers feel this same way. Then, you may ask, why do you like homeschool? There are numerous reasons, most of them centering around my family. Not only do I get to spend much more time with my family, but can also travel to see family that lives farther away. I can have a Bible Class and, as I'm sure you've gathered if you've been reading my blog for any length of time, we DO take many trips. We have been able to visit Yellowstone, Yosemite, Disneyland, and the Grand Canyon on days when others are in school so it is not nearly as crowded. This brings me to the focus of my post. Because I am homeschooled, I am so blessed. Take a look at the view from my classroom window that I had yesterday.
