I love a good quote. In fact, I’m a bit of a quote collector. When I hear a good quote, I write it down in my journal and I often share it with others.

Sometimes on my really tough homeschooling days, I may read through my joy journal or seek inspiration from several homeschool quotes.

Today I thought I would share some fabulous homeschool quotes with you!
