Dads Are a Big Part of Homeschooling Too!


I am very blessed to have a husband who not only supports my being at home with the children, but really wants me to home school. Even though he isn't at home during the day, he still is a very important part of our home school. There are many things that Art can do that I am not so skilled at. Fixing cars, repairs, yard work are just to name a few. The children love to be with daddy and follow him around to see what he is doing. They are learning from him all of the time. This fall Alex helped to build a tree stand and Chelsea and Alex also helped to, well there's no delicate way to say it, gut the deer. The kids are also learning how to do repairs (they can use a screwdriver better than I can) They love to ride on the tractor and drive the garbage down to the road (yes drive, the road is 1/4 mile from the house) Art also has a passion for fixing up vehicles. Right now he is restoring a 1951 Buick and building a chopper motorcycle, and you guessed it the kids are helping him with his projects. They can't wait until they are older and can build Hot Rods of their own.
