What Has Sonlight Done for You?

Brittany finally convinced me to take her to see Tut. While wandering through the exhibit, I noticed a sketch of the different crowns the Pharaoh wore. It looked suspiciously familiar, like something I had seen out of a book in Sonlight's homeschool curriculum. I had seen those same images before.

As a student, Sonlight gave me access to incredible books packed full of wonderful stories and compelling information. And I know Sonlight does that for parents as well. But my question is: What have you found Sonlight has done for you, the teacher?

I've seen glimpses into what Sonlight does for parents, I've read the stories, but I'd like to hear your experience: What has Sonlight done for your homeschool? What has Sonlight done for you?

This is a hard question! I think the main thing Sonlight has done for me as a mom is to give me confidence. If I follow the plan, I know I am going down the same path that many others, who have been successful, have gone down before me. On a more personal note, Sonlight has given me the gift of beautiful books full of rich stories that might just keep this mama from letting her brain go too idle!

Oh, Luke, so many things! I think I'll answer in a blog post in the next day or three and come drop you a link. Too much for one little blogger comment space!

Wow I would have thought you would have jumped at the chance to see Tut.

Maybe Sonlight didn't give you a lifelong love for learning. ;)

<smile> I still enjoy learning. I just hate spending money and museums aren't my cup o' tea.
