A Dad's Role
He has been a wonderful encourager and has been there along the way to pick up and help out when needed. When I felt like things just weren't going to work out he encouraged me to stay the course and not give up. He believes we are doing what the Lord has called us to do. He will be the first to tell other dads that homeschooling is the best thing that they can do for their children. He has taken me to many home school conventions, because he knows they mean a lot to me. He is the one who shares with others how wonderful the conventions are and how they are very convicting to him. He also takes our family on many educational vacations traveling to places that are historically important because he loves our country and wants our children to understand its history.
As Father's Day approaches I hope to do something very special for him so that he knows how much he means to his family. I'm afraid we just don't let him know often enough how much we love him and all he does for us. As our youngest son begins his first year of high school at home next year I know my husband will have many ideas for his growth toward godly manhood. I already know that there are some wonderful woodworking projects and drafting lessons in the works. Some have even been completed; check out picnic table on our family blog.
Happy Father's Day and happy homeschooling!
