One of the most wonderful aspects of homeschooling is that your child can do just about anything that he or she has a passion for. My oldest had his own lawnmower repair shop when he was 8, my second son raised prometheus caterpillars form larvae to grown moths in our backyard on a tree he isolated from the rest of the yard, another child is heavily into robotics and tonight I was showing my daughter, who is 8, how to use an image editing program called Pixelmator. I plan to teach her how to develop her own website. Because, we will have TIME to do those things. She won’t be tired out from a long schoolday and we can go as far as we want with it. Here is an image she altered tonight- it was originally a cello with a bow. I like what she did with it.
