Homeschooling

We started our homeschooling journey at the start of the 2013 school year. We participate in a program called Classical Conversations (affectionately called CC) and spend most of our time singing songs, drawing maps and reading together. My hope is that by sharing some of our adventures, you’ll be encouraged in whatever schooling journey you choose. Many of the projects and activities we tackle can easily be adapted to a traditional classroom or included in your normal family time.

Until last year, I always swore I wouldn’t home school.  I was sure I couldn’t possibly handle being my children’s parent AND teacher. That I’d go crazy, or become a uber-type-A-strictly-structured (and hated by my children) person. The funny thing is, none of that has happened. I’ve been incredibly (pleasantly) surprised at how smoothly we’ve transitioned as a family, and what a blessing homeschooling has been.

I don’t share our journey lightly, or expect that you will agree with everything I say. Nor do I think that homeschooling is necessarily what is best for every child/family. We began homeschooling because we thought it was best for us. And so far, nothing has changed that opinion. So we’re going to keep voyaging to the great unknown, learning as a family how to succeed along the way.
