Yesterday a reporter from a local TV station called to ask if I would do an interview about homeschooling for their series on Back to School. I had been up most of the night before with a sick Ben, so I initially told her no & gave her someone else's phone number! But then Josie asked who had called & got excited about being on TV & talking about home education - so we called her back & she came over - whee! We didn't do a lot of staging or even cleaning up because I wanted it to be real. The more minimalist I get though, the easier it is to keep things tidy ;0)
The reporter did a good job keeping the heart of what I wanted to say, despite editing 45 minutes of conversation for a 3 minute segment. She wanted to know if homeschool students were more successful than public or private schooled children, & I told her it depended on what your definition of success is - is it bragging rights with your friends or grandparents? Is is an eventual PhD w/ tons of $…
Oh, just marrying off our two oldest! Crazy, I know. But great things can come from great homeschool groups + home church ;0) I promise I'll update here more often, but if you want more pictures & more consistency, check out mamj41 on Instagram (that's me! but no, I'm haven't been 41 for a few years now ha ha).
Thanks & see you soon!
