Home Schooling is so much FUN!

After our first week of home school I can emphatically say that I love it! We had fun, we made progress, we haven't wanted to kill each other yet. It's all positive so far.

I have enjoyed our kids like never before. I think God has really changed my heart in the last few months which is the very reason why I can feel this way today. Not that home schooling is for everyone, but for our family it was just what was needed. Time moves so quickly and I feel that home schooling gives us back a bit more time. A little more time to grow my children's faith and character in the loving environment of our home. I feel privileged to be able to do this.

Suzanne asked about the curriculim we chose for this year. We are using the Alpha and Omega LIFEPAC curriculum and I am supplementing with some Konos activities and learning styles. For my first year I wanted something very structured and more formal (mainly because I lacked confidence and wanted something to more rigid and formal to fall back on) but I can see that as we grow more comfortable I will be able to do what many HS families do and mix and match our curriculum to suit our interests and learning styles. A custom education. What's more fun than that!?
