My Unsocialized Home Educated Son

Levi is in the middle of his third year of baseball. We are very thankful that every year he has had good coaches and teammates. Believe it or not he has fit in just fine every single year. Last week coaches made him team captain. In three years there has never been a team captain so I am uncertain as to why there is one this year but there is. I believe being home educated is the reason he is team captain. He stepped into a leadership position without being placed there,  and then he was given the title. He works diligently, he takes initiative and pretty much gives his coaches and team all the teaching and training that we have worked for almost fifteen years to instill a work ethic in him. He still has much to learn and even though he doesn't always give us the same 100% at home, I see that it is there. That is seeing the fruit of our labor and getting a glimpse of the man he will some day be. Now, to transfer these skills to cleaning his room.....

***this isn't a brag post just a "where we are in life"post AKA, Momma needed this glimpse of her son post


  1. He is an amazing to get my boy to turn out that way!

  2. That is so great that he is growing like that. What an awesome blessing for you to see the beginning fruits of your labor.

  3. It is such a blessing to see our kids doing what we've tried so hard to teach them.
