Lessons Applied by a Home-Schooler
"There is no school equal to a decent home and no teacher equal to a virtuous parent."
Educating children in their own home has great advantages for the whole family, if they can afford to or if they are satisfied with the idea.
If you want to know more about Homeschooling, I invite you to read my two hubs:
One of the advantages of home schooling is that the teaching environment is wherever the home-schooler is. Parents guiding their children receive satisfaction as they evaluate in real life experiences the application by the home-schooler of the lessons they taught. The home-schooler also will be able to demonstrate with pride the skills achieved in the real life experiences.
Such is the case of this home-schooler who has achieved many skills from the education his parent's have given him. He has come to a level where with those skills, he could be self educated in many aspects.
We began to enjoy his skills and also became witnesses of what he has achieved. The day we went fishing with him, he inspired me to write the hub: Fishing Reflections.
This hub is to share what this home-schooler does with what he catches from fishing.
What to do after fishing?
The results when cleaning and will depend on the condition of the fish. I do not know if a professional will follow the steps of this home-schooler, but I sure do know that he will demonstrate how to cooking a fish survive...isn't that one of the purposes in life?

Steps by a home-schooler cleaning fish
Step # 1
After washing the fish (I hope...not shown) the home-schooler in reference prepared a table to proceed with his cleaning skills.
Step # 2
With a sharp knife and proper handling he proceeded to cut off the fish's head.
Step # 3
The home-schooler proceeded to cut the fish in half and clean the inside of it.
Step # 4
Keeping focus and very determined, he then scraped the scales with a scraping tool.
Step # 5
Managing very well the slippery fish he held the body and cut off the fish's tail.
Step # 6
The parts that were left like the fins, he had them removed with great abilities.
Step # 7
With a profound pride, he took the second fish to follow the steps of cleaning his first fish.
Step # 8
He seasoned the fish, prepared the frying pan, heated the oil and began to fry them.
Step # 9
Yummy yummy, he ate his fish; leaving on his parent's faces the big smile they had when they knew they were having a baby and the smile they had when they were walking through the streets with him in their arms.
This home-schooler will not die of hunger. His evaluation is his daily living as he struggles and lives his own life with: happiness, love, freedom and appreciation for what he has gained.
Blessings to all!
