The commencement of a homeschooling student not only celebrates the student’s accomplishments but also honors the parents and the lifestyle commitment they have made to their family.

One More Squeeze

Picking up the twisted, rolled, and mutilated, tube of toothpaste, you decide to squeeze it one more time and somehow enough toothpaste comes out that you now think twice about throwing the tube away. “One more squeeze,” you say and put the tube back in the drawer. This routine goes on for five or six...
