Kids. Sometimes they are so loving. Sometimes so frustrating. And sometimes they are just plain funny. I think Jesus had it right when he said, “Allow the children, and do not forbid them to come to me, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven” (Matthew 19:14). Sometimes simplicity is best. That said, here are 10 things my girls taught me while homeschooling this past year.

- Dirt is much more fun when it is mud.
- No matter how dirty you get you can always take a shower.
- No matter how dirty the floor gets from all the mud, you can clean it. (uh…huh)
- Tickling solves many frustrations.
- Sometimes its just easier to get rid of toys than pick them up because then you never have to clean your room again.[bctt tweet=”No matter how dirty you get you can always take a shower.”]
- Playing is much more fun with two.
- A smile can cover a multitude of sins…well, at least it helps.
- Sunglasses are all you need to feel like one “cool dude.”
- Sometimes you just feel a jump rising up inside and you just can’t help it!
- Telling others about Jesus is as easy as saying, “do you know Jesus?” Why do we have to make it so complicated?!
