One of the many things I love about home schooling is the joy I feel when the kids learn something new. It's so great to see them go through that cycle of uncertainty, sometimes confusion and frustration, then determination and on to accomplishment. I love to see that satisfied look on their faces that says " Look, I can do it!" Here is an example from this weekend:
This is Mason (8yrs old) blowing the cut grass off the driveway. Dad had shown him how and then let him go. They were very pleased with themselves.
