Love when I get the socialization comment...
My response is always something along the lines of:
"Really? You mean, the socialization that occurs during the 7 hours where they're essentially told to be quiet unless called upon? Or the 1 hour during which they eat and scurry between classes?"
Glad to hear you had the opportunity to homeschool. I didn't get that chance personally, and I wish I did. But that just makes me more appreciative of being able to homeschool (or unschool, as it were) my own kids, and I'm enjoying every moment of it.
So, too, are they.
