Homeschooling

When you are a homeschooling mom, it is hard to share about your life without mentioning homeschooling. My kids have always been homeschooled. While we love homeschooling, I know that it’s not a choice that works for every family. I’ve had  the honor of speaking at many schools and I have been so impressed! I’m not anti-school, I just truly enjoy spending my days teaching my kids. What do I love about home education?

Our days are filled with reading and exploration,

field trips, and nature.

Did I mention books? Because there are so many books. I mean we really, really love books around here.

The kids have the freedom to play,

and follow their passions.

They’ve had the chance to embrace family.

And be the unique people they were born to be.

Sometimes it’s really, really hard. I have days where I want to hide in my bedroom, drink coffee, and let the kids take over he house “Lord of the Flies” style. Most of the time, though, it’s a huge blessing. I love giving my kids the freedom to fully explore their interests, the ability to learn at their own pace and the freedom to wear butterfly wings while they do math. We’ve had many opportunities to travel that we would not have had if we’d been held to a school district schedule. When my oldest, who has Asperger’s, was younger, he was able to receive lots of therapy, 9 appointments a week, because we didn’t have to keep to a school schedule. He’s come so far and that point in his life was vital to that progress.

I know that homeschooling is not for everyone, but it is a big part of our story and it’s part of my life I love to share with others.
