Let's be real. Homeschooling is hard. It takes a lot out of the parent who is on the front line, no matter what method you choose and what educational philosophy you follow. It is always helpful to have a supportive spouse. Someone who doesn't mind living on one paycheck. Someone who doesn't mind earning that paycheck. Someone who supports your crazy schemes. Someone who believes in you. I got lucky. I have that.
So when I wish my dear husband a happy birthday, I do it with my deepest gratitude that he chose to spend his life with me and has helped me raise three of the most interesting people I know.
