Decision

So i have made a decision. After much consideration me and Eric have decided we definately want our children to be homeschooled. We have found a christian based curriculum that we are going to use and Alexander will be starting kindergarten for sure this fall!! It is more pricey to homeschool..but totally worth it. From what we have seen the schools are a mess these days. I have had people say "well how are they going to be a witness if they don't go to school. And a blog I ran across had a reply to that, and I loved it. Do we want to expose our children to ungodly teaching when they are at a young age and unable to understand what's true from what's not? She asked if we were being selfish to put  our own childs needs before societies needs. Then she went on to talk about how God has given us as parents the responsibility to teach and train our children. And that they can't very well go out and influence the world for good until they have been prepared for it. Proverbs 22:6 says  Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it. So that's what I want to do. I want to prepare my children here. Teach them about God and all the other things that they need to be taught. And spend all my time with focusing on equiping them. After all doesn't the bible tell us that children are like arrows? Sharpen them right, teach them right..and these children will be like arrows in the hand of a mighty warrior, changing this world. I do have to say that this will be a new experience and I'm sure it will take some time to get on track..but I'm excited! So if you are already a homeschooling mama and have some suggestions any tips/websites would be appreciated :)
