I was a public school deaf education teacher before we had children. I thought homeschoolers were weirdos. Then I had my first baby (HB). Then, with HB nine weeks old, we got Daniel. Then we became one of the weirdos.
Now I’m partial to weirdos. ;-)
It’s not always easy. It’s not always fun. Truly, I’ve found that anything really worth doing is never easy and never always fun.
I am happy to answer any questions you might have about homeschooling. If I can’t answer your question, I’ll find you someone who can. Just ask: gratefulforgrace(at)hotmail(dot)com
Here are a some posts I’ve written about homeschooling that will get you started:
Just Starting to Homeschool (tips for starting… no matter when you do)
You can also type “homeschooling” in the search box to see plenty of posts where I talk about homeschooling and how it plays out in our life. Educational. Moving. Silly. All of it.
Some subtopics for my homeschooling posts are the following:
Field Trips, Curric Talk, Homeschooling in General, New to Homeschooling, Crafts/Projects/Activities, and What We’re Learning. Search those for specific posts on the topic.
And because people always ask… click here for a list of the curriculum we have used or are using now.
Also, here are my curric reviews:
Let me say again (as I said in my post on The Best Advice I Was Ever Given): a curriculum is great only if it works for and with you. It must be a match to your educational philosophy AND your personality AND your life. Seriously.
And just in case you don’t click on any of the other posts… know this, I believe if you really want to homeschool, you can! Don’t talk yourself out of it. There is lots and lots of support on the web, if you can’t find it in real life. I’d be happy to be your first cheerleader.
