If you view my life through The Golden Gleam's Instagram feed, it looks like we are playfully energetic and creative family who loves spending time together. It's an accurate portrayal of our family - most of the time.
But there are the phases and moments in our life that are not picture perfect.
These times don't end up on Instagram.
Pictures such as my daughters' picking flowers in a field of clover are featured.

Usually, I don't do a lot to facilitate my kids' outdoor play. My kids use the materials in our yard to create their own play.
Recently, they have been busy with what they call their kitchen or science experiments. It's their self made mud pie kitchen.

"Why does she even have kids if they are going to be in daycare all day?"
"I love spending time with my children, and that's why I homeschool. They are only young once."
Comments similar to these are not uncommon if you ever frequent internet sites populated mostly by stay at home mothers or homeschoolers.

This is my first year homeschooling my children. Legitimately, those not familiar with homeschooling are concerned about socialization for homeschooled kids. I agree it is important for my children to learn positive social skills.
Whether children are educated at home or school, parents need to provide social experiences for children beyond the home and classroom.
