. . . I did???

So the other day, I was talking to one of the kids about something in the kitchen. I can't even remember now what the conversation was about. Matthew sidled up to me, tucking me into his arm.  

He said very sincerely, "Mom, I would just like to thank you for home schooling me."  I said, "What???" He said, "I just want to tell you: home school is the best thing you could have done for us. I know it was a lot for you to home school me. I just wanted to thank you. I realized when I was talking to someone the other night, you not only gave me a great education, you taught me how to think."  

I said in Awe. . .
