Homeschool End of Year: Letter to Our Son

As part of Gabi's year end Oral Portfolio Review, we were advised to give him a Character Award and a letter. We decided to give him a Certificate for Never Giving Up even when things got difficult. His Dad, the Principal awarded it to him after his Oral Presentation and read his touching letter to him.

Homeschool End of Year

Here's the letter we made for Gabi:

Dear Gab,

First of all, I want you to know your brother, mom, and I love you very much and we could not be prouder of you. We are not perfect parents, but we have done our best to help you make your way through these difficult growing-up years and prepare for the future.

There is so much I wish to share with you! I want you to understand the rough years I spent with no faith before I surrendered my life to Christ and found the truth I was seeking. Only until God opens our spiritual eyes that we will see that He is at work even when we were still spiritually dead. 

Always remember that God loves you, no matter what. Stay true to yourself and always love and serve Him. We, in the best of our ability, had taught you the difference between right and wrong. Never lose touch with your values; they define who you are.

When faced with adversities and criticisms (main reason why we are homeschooling you to prepare you for the real world) always find your identity in Christ not with what they say you are.

Joy comes from putting Christ first, acknowledge Him in all things.

With all love,

Dear Son,

Let me first congratulate you for completing another year! You've done a fantastic job! Each year is different, but you are showing improvements each year.

I want to let you know that I am blessed because I have a son like you. Even though Mom loses temper most of the time, you did not give up. Even though Mom most of the time transforms into a monster, you still want to homeschooI. You even requested to be homeschooled until college. Even though we do not have a lot, you are able to adjust and our hears well with gratitude to God for your life. Truly, you are someone we do not deserve. We have many ups and downs but we were able to surpass them by God's grace.

I want to thank you for being flexible with the changes in our curriculum at the start of our year. I've seen how you thrive with the new method that we are using and I am looking forward to more books to read and new discoveries together. Whatever path God leads us on this journey, we are in this together and He is in control.

Always remember that you are a child of God, a gift to your parents, you are valuable because God made you. Your strengths lie on who you are, not in who you will become.  May you continue to glorify God in your life. We love you so dearly. Once again, congratulations!



We are thankful to God for finishing another year. It is only by His grace that we were able to do it. To Him be all the glory and honor in this journey!
