My Homeschooling Spirit has been Renewed.

I often get questioned about how Anthony socializes. I don't think that school has anything to do with socializing. Anyone remember "Silent Lunch". I found an article that spoke about this issue. Here is a brief part of the article.
"As a society full of people whose childhood's were spent waiting anxiously for recess time, and trying desperately to "socialize" with the kids in class; It is often difficult for people to have an image of a child whose social life is NOT based on school buddies. Do you ever remember sitting in class, and wanting desperately to speak to your friend? It's kinda hard to concentrate on the lessons when you're bouncing around trying not to talk. Have you ever had a teacher who rearranged the seats every now and then, to prevent talking, splitting up friends and "talking corners". Were you ever caught passing notes in class?"
Read the full article here.
I thought the article was right on. I post more pictures of the kids later this week.

I just love the photo of Anthony holding his little sister! How sweet -- he looks so protective, and she looks like an angel. :o)
