I watched a news clip recently that inspired me AND my children to something more. Not that duplicating what this family has done is our objective (because it is not), but I think it’s super healthy to see what’s possible, since in general, the media and society at large sets such low expectations for family success.
To preface this clip, I want to mention that we decided many years ago that we wanted to raise our children with home education.

I know, some people think it’s ‘different’ (because it is). But one thing that I love is finding examples of people around the world who have borne good fruit from ‘being different’.

I think for the sake of families everywhere, such “unconventional” systems really should be.
