Homeschool on a Dime

Whenever I explain to people that we homeschool, the usual response is either, "I don't have the patience- I'd go crazy" or "oh, my word, we could never afford that." Believe me, I get it. I'm no wellspring of patience- just ask my family (on second thought, please don't!). For example, this morning, the veins in my head nearly exploded as my child calmly informed me that she had never seen the letter, "M," before. Apparently, that's what two weeks of summer break does to you, when you're 6 years old. I remember, in college, one of my friends reminiscing that he couldn't remember his mom ever raising her voice. Twenty year old Sarah thought, "Hey that's the mom I'll be someday." Then, God laughed and said, "Let the refining process begin." So, while I don't have any tips on keeping your sanity, aside from lots of prayer and breathing deeply, I do have tips on saving money on curriculum... to read the rest, click here!
