I couldn't have said it better myself

In fact, I didn't. Here's inspiration from other homeschool blogs.
The Rule of Six from Melissa at The Lilting House
Six Things to Include
in Your Child's Day:
• meaningful work
• imaginative play
• good books
• beauty (art, music, nature)
• ideas to ponder and discuss
• prayer

Goals from Mama Squirrel at Dewey's Treehouse
Our long-term goals in education are to "produce" (unfortunate word) capable, educated adults who can think logically, act responsibly, read intelligently, write clearly, show compassion, and have a working relationship with the world and its Creator. I don't think there is a standardized test that can measure those things.

From Cyndi at Mater Magistra: We homeschool because of what homeschooling is, not because of what public school isn't. That the current state of our country's public schools is the best in history and in all of the world is certainly debatable. But, for us, that's not at the heart of our decision whether or not to utilize them. I think it speaks more highly of homeschooling as an educational choice for the public schools to be strong and for people to choose to homeschool anyway. For what homeschooling is.
