Happy Father's Day!

What would I have done without my husband? When I was homeschooling, I relied on him to play the "Heavy" - making sure that my kids finished their schoolwork as required each day. He coached the soccer team, and baseball team, and judged swim team. In high school, he edited all their papers, and made an attempt to keep up with the children in economics and chess (I completely gave up and threw in the towel for both subjects!) My husband was always ready to give the boys a big hug - or get down on the floor to wrestle with them. Thank goodness, because it perfectly balanced out my more reserved nature. Today he has a wonderfully close relationship with both our boys, which I think speaks volumes about what a great dad he is.

What would I do without my husband? Now that we have stopped homeschooling, and started our consulting business, he continues to help me work toward our common goal of helping homeschoolers. Without my husband I would have just a business card and a phone number. My son made my original website, but since that time it's been my husband who has been in charge. He keeps it updated, adds every article and link - he has actually taught himself HTML and other "techie" things just to keep it up! Although I write all my blog posts, it's my husband who puts them online, because he is able to add the photos, the links, and even my cool green signature at the bottom. When we make the newsletter, he does more than just contribute his article! He searches for the photos, and works to make the newsletter more visually appealing, because I tend to be just a "facts please" kind of gal. In everything I do, my husband helps me "add the funny" to make my message more enjoyable - both my written articles and speeches are hugely improved with his edits and input. My husband has learned how to turn video into training classes, has learned to edit audio and produce audio courses. He really handles EVERYTHING technical. A manager in his "day job," he has a lot of business sense that is invaluable to "The HomeScholar" business, and the only thing that has allowed me to continue to grow. All my logos, all my convention colors, and all my brochures and fliers I owe to my husband. I just want to say...

THANK YOU, MATT! HAPPY FATHER'S DAY!

Hey Dad, I just wanted to chime in with how thankful I am to have you as a father. Over the years, I've discovered that I'm not drawn to many role models; but as time passes I realize how strong of one you have been in my life. Thank you for teaching me what it is to be strong, responsible and protective over what is valuable in life. I truly appreciate all of the sacrifices that you have made and I look forward to learning more from you as I prepare to be a father myself. Thanks; I love you.

Dear Mr. Homescholar,

You have been a wonderful role model for me, and also a wonderful counselor for when I really need your help. You've always been there, and always ready to help or encourage me to be better and do better. You're an amazing father; may our Father bless you as much as you've blessed us.

Matt,
Coming for a different view point - through dating your son .. =) you have done a truly incredible job of raising your sons. And seeing how you support Lee's business & encrouage her in this endeavor (And helping me with my own essays!!)has been incredible to witness. Spending time with your family is a joy everything I'm over there. Thank you for putting so much time and effort into your boys (especially Kevin.) =) You've done an incredible job.
