As a homeschooling family, our number one priority is making sure our children receive a proper education for an overall successful adulthood. We believe that homeschooling offers a unique opportunity for children to explore subjects in depth, that they may never even get to discuss inside a traditional public school classroom. We have a dedicated homeschool room in our home, and participate in local homeschooling groups and co-ops and clubs to give our children access to outside influences and interaction with others. We believe that children should also be taught the necessary skills to be able to work with people from all walks of life, because this will likely be something they have to do in the future.
In this section of our website, we will provide links to useful resources, discuss tips on how to homeschool on a budget (without sacrificing your child’s education), how to plan your own curriculum, articles on scheduling, and will provide access to some our own home-made activities and educational materials. Our materials work for both homeschoolers and parents just looking for fun activities to do with their children.
I originally never thought I would be a homeschooling mom, but after getting this experience – I would not have it any other way. However, every family has different needs and I understand that homeschooling is not the right fit for everyone and, even among homeschoolers, differences in teaching and structure vary wildly. Our way is not the only way, but we do hope that you can find something useful in our articles that is the right fit for your family!
