First, this is my first year of homeschooling. However, I taught kindergarten for six years. DH is supportive of the decision to hs our kids but still felt they needed the social activities involved with school. We had a great first year and DH complimented me throughout saying what a great teacher I am! Then, the other day I was preparing some things for next year and I called him over to preview them. He sat down and said, "So, you are going to homeschool again next year?" I said of course I was and what did he think I was going to do. (We withdrew dd from private school due to the extremely high cost of tuition.) Anyway, he asks how much was it again to go to private and I tell him. He says he thinks we can now afford that. I bring up that ds will be going in another year as well and he says okay. So, I am sitting there wondering where this all came from. I ask him if I am such a good teacher then why do they need to go back to school? He goes into his spill about how he wants them to have the social part like he did. He played sports all through school and built nice friendships through that. I argued that they can have all the sports they want but he wants a high school team player. Blah, blah, blah! Then, last night I showed him my son's finished scrapbook and he is amazed. He asks, "Are you are going to do a big book like this every year???" Why not, I ask??? When he is done he walks away for something and when he returns he says, "I'll say this again. You are THE BEST teacher in the World!". Hmm, then why send your kids away so the best teacher in the world won't be able to teach them? He's a goofball! I don't know how to explain to him that what he is saying sounds ridiculous. I think having a good teacher and good learning experience far outweighs some sports activities.
