It's like a scene right out of Little house on the Prairie. I adore this 100+ year old school and the philosophy behind the woman who created it ( read more here on Marietta Johnson ). I am one lucky mommy to have the ability to choose whether to send them off to school every morning or have them stay at home. I see homeschooling as a great opportunity to rediscover my children's desires and weakness and the love I have for each one. On a cold winter's day there's nothing better than to curl up on the couch next to your child and teach them to read.
