I don’t often discuss the topic of homeschooling here but since so many of you have asked about it, I thought I’d address some of those questions today (and next week too).
And even if you don’t homeschool yourself, you still might find it interesting and helpful if you have other friends or family that are going this route? Or maybe you’re simply curious!
So today I’m going to take you through what a typical homeschooling day looks like in our home. When we start and when we stop. What subjects we cover – and which ones we don’t! How we make it all “work” and other mysteries of homeschooling. 🙂
You might be surprised at how simple we make it, but this is what has worked for us. As I’ve been a homeschooling mom for 16 years (and figure I’ve got another 8 years to go), I’ve realized that I have to make it workable for ME – and yet successful for THEM too. That can be a somewhat precarious balance, I’ll admit!
Not only that, but we all want to enjoy the process along the way, right?
So here’s how we do it….

- The 5 Things You Need to Know If You’re Homeschooling
- Six Reasons Why You Might Want to Consider Homeschooling

And here are some of the questions we’ll be covering next week:
- What if there are gaping holes in their education?
- What do you do about the different ages?
- How do you keep up with it all?
- What if you have illness or new babies or other major setbacks?
- What are some of your recommended resources?
