Yep, I am a homeschooling mom! Probably makes sense to some of my fans, I do love to teach
This journey actually began when I was 13, my dad homeschooled me for 2 years and during that time I built a very good relationship with my parents. I look back on that time as the best of my teen years; I was no longer worried about what my peers thought of me, I could be myself. And my parents were no longer my enemies, I learned that they were people with ideas, plans, and dreams. I learned to trust their advice.
When we started having kids the topic of homeschooling was brought up. I had known several homeschooling families and couldn’t get over how well-behaved and interesting the kids were. They were polite, could easily converse with anyone no matter the age, and were smart. My husband agreed to let me try it for a year and see how things went. Well, I am not a procrastinator, my daughter was 3 1/2 and I thought if I only had a year then I better get cracking! I bought some simple preschool books, shapes, letters and numbers and was surprised at how quickly we went through them. Because I read to her every night before she went to bed she already knew these basics. I bought a 500 page preschool book, then a 500 page kindergarden book, and before we knew it, she was 4 years old and reading her first words.
That was how it all began. We’ve changed curriculum a few times and have settled on My Father’s World. Now to the best part. Through homeschooling I’VE learned more than I could have ever imagined. About God, about myself, about my children, about the world….the list goes on and on. I’d like to start sharing these things with you
