Now that I'm a homeschooling mom I get to study things I didn't learn while I was in school. Such as all of these ancient civilizations, and the elements and periodic table in detail, not just enough to get me through pre-med biology class.
Homeschooling keeps me on my toes, and keeps me looking for new information. For instance, today I saw a story about a newly discovered dinosaur. Anzu Wylei. It's nickname is "Chicken from Hell." We had fun reading about it.
In our study of Ancient China, I checked out two books on the Terra Cotta Warriors from the library, and we are both enjoying the books.
Because my child is eager to learn, and loves to do research, he frequently finds information that is intriguing for both of us. He delights in sharing the information with me, and I'm so thankful that he loves to learn.
I know that I wouldn't be learning all of these things without homeschool. The schedule of school and work and all that goes along with keeping a home on top of that would not allow me enough time.
