You know those kind of friends who just make you feel good when you are with them...
This is one of those families.
This is the family that without "talking me into it", talked me into Home schooling. Cassie's outlook on life is so similar to mine.
It was her blog about why she was going to start homeschooling that pushed me into the home school world. I was already on the fence but this was definitely the final push. The blog expressed how they were less concerned with how smart their kids were and more concerned with how spiritually sound they are.
She also emphasizes the importance of a strong sense of family. Something I can't say enough about.
Each time we hang out I leave the day feeling uplifted, encouraged, and... well... just good about the direction I am going in life.
I am not sure what we are going to do when they move to Costa Rica next year. We will definitely miss our home school buddies.

All afternoon in the pool the kids say "Mom do this...", Mom go under", "Mom play with me!"
Now I can sit on the steps of the pool cast and play 'cat and mouse' with the kids! They'll play for hours. They are entertained and getting worn out. I am playing with them and I get to relax!
