Graduates Number Two


This past weekend we graduated our second son from homeschool.  If we can do it, you can do it.  Davis Homeschool started in 1999 with one in kindergarten, one in pre-k, and one in utero receiving instruction in ABC’s via daddy talking to my round belly.

We homeschooled our two graduates for 13 years, and have four years left with our youngest. It has been one wild, adventurous, unpredictable, all consuming, and undeniably spectacularly wonderful ride! Congratulations to our 2014 graduate Benny for surviving and thriving in homeschool.  He has grown from a sweet, always smiling, loved to read, little boy to a charming, dry-humored, always smiling, loves to play video games, but loves Jesus more young man.  We are beaming with joy. We know God has plans for our sons, and are happy to sit back and watch it all unfold.  I wish we could take credit for the way they turned out, but we were just the instruments.  God gets the glory.

  • If you are in the early years of homeschooling: enjoy it and don’t give up, it only gets better.
  • If you are in the middle years, don’t panic: high school is easier than you think.
  • If you are in the home stretch: hang on tight cause its a whirlwind.
  • If you graduated your child: Congratulations.  

they are worth it

  1. Kathy,

    What an honor to be with you for a significant part of this journey (11 years). Watching the transformation of your children has been a testament to the love and dedication and discipline of you and Gary. You have encouraged me and guided me and given me perspective. My two boys will graduate next year and then I will be where you are today, looking at them and wondering how it all managed to go so well when so many days seemed chaotic :)

    Blessings on you my friends …and on your son.

  2. Cynthia, thank you so much for being right there with us. I can hardly wait for you to experience the thrill and joy of the end of the journey. You too have been an encouragement to me and thank you! Especially for the worm dissection. or was it a frog..or was it both?! XO
