My daughter, Ariel, is an athlete. Since we live in an area where the only access homeschoolers have to play sports is in public school, I actually encouraged her (sorry Ryan) to go to high school. She began going only part time with the understanding that there would be certain activities that other students participated in that she would not. It has been for the most part a very good experience. She has had caring teachers and made good friends. She has excelled athletically, especially in basketball, her first love.
Tonight my little homeschooled girl became Miss Franklin High School ! After all those years of people questioning if homeschoolers can 'fit in' with their peers it is nice to be able to say, "of course !" Okay, I will admit that there were alot of things Ariel did not know about when she first started school. Someone asked her recently if she tried to 'be popular' (as if she knew what that was). She responded, "I didn't even know what the bells were for." lol
