Why I Homeschool....

I handed my daughter a $1.99 Carolya watercolor set and some posterboard for her 5th Birthday. She immediately asked "Where's my easel, Mom?" I started laughing. A desk used to be good enough for me in kindergarten. Thankfully, I figured out that a dining room chair can work as an easel in a pinch. Then she had to have a separate chair for her paints. Everything was just so, just like the "real" artists. I love that there are no artifical/useless constraints in our house. You don't have to paint at your desk. Our school work is more like living a real life--you paint how you want to paint--and the results are wonderful!
