Yesterday, my three children and I visited my sister-in-law's church for their Wednesday evening service. Each of my children had to go into a separate class (they are 5,6, and 9). My 5 year old daughter, Holly, was a little hesitant about not going into class with her brother, but then she just looked at me, I nodded my head to go in, and she pulled a chair at the table with the other children and started doing her thing! I was so proud of her. But, the best part was when I went to go get her after service! The teacher told me that she did wonderful! She said that she participated and sang and was just a joy to have in class. The teacher even told me that she participated more than most of the children that come all of the time! I was elated! So, that's proof positive that homeschooled children are not timid little mice just because they aren't in a "school" setting.
