So as we approach back to school season I realized just how much money I will be saving just by homeschooling. We started in January and this is my first full year. Surprisingly, I see now that I couldn't afford public school. From the new clothes and shoes to shopping for a long list of items that I had to get even though my one child would never use them all during that year. It was all too much. I also didn't know that I was subconsciously trying to impress the teachers and other parents in an effort to ensure they didn't prejudge us. And so they would hopefully treat my son well. I'm so glad I do t have to worry about any of this anymore!
