Son struggled through homeschool. For one year he quit all
together and I sent him to work with his Dad. When he was 16
we moved to a town with a community college. He took the
enterance test never having tested before and was admitted. He
passed the classes he liked and forgot the others. He then
decided to go into the air force. He had one of the highest
scores on the asvab. They even checked it twice to see if it was
right. He is thriving in the air force.
My daughter was the one who failed algebra 1 three times. But
at 15 started college with her brother. We tried the Clep thing
too with poor results. All the things I thought they couldn't do.
Writing. Math,ect. She aced in college. Her professor told her
she was the most gifted writer he had ever seen. She aced
college algebra. Now at 17 she is in her third year of college
with straight A's. Double majoring in premed and English.
If you would ask me I would say we are homeschool failures.
Most projects we started never got finished. They struggled and
complained and cried over assignments. I felt lost and alone
most of the time, but somehow the Lord honored the sacrifice
and as adults these kids are excelling.
I have three more at home and lament the fact that they can't
write, spell, do math ect. But we continue to struggle through.
Trusting that the Lord will provide the increase.
Thank you for your post it is nice to know I'm not the only one
who struggled and doubted our efforts.
