We are a homeschooling family. We enjoy a pretty simple way of life. I plan our studies based on units I feel are important to cover, not on a textbook or someone else’s boxed curriculum. I am finding that I must have had a poor excuse for an education because I am learning right alongside my kids! How did I not know what happened during the American Revolution, for goodness sake?!
Anyway, we have homeschooled since our daughter was old enough to be attending school and she is now 13 years old. She is in 8th grade, though she does many grades, really, depending on the subject. Our son is 10 years old and is doing mostly 4th grade work. I am constantly adjusting our routine based on the needs of our changing family! I had our third child in September of 2011, so we now have a two year old to entertain during school hours (well, ALL hours really!)
Here are some of the posts I’ve shared on homeschooling:
