Why I Want to Homeschool MY Kids Someday, By Maddie

Homeschooling gives you a way to be with your children while they do school. It also gives you a way to know what they are learning and how they are doing with school work. Plus you can have school done before lunch. But the most important thing is GOD.

The girls that teased her didn't believe her.Then one day there was a drawing contest and two of the girls that teased Wanda thought they were going to win the contest but when they came in dress pictures were all over the room.The teacher said the winer was Wanda.Then they heard that she had moved away Maddie and Penny were sorry about teasing Wanda.

They were very pretty.
