Our first year of homeschooling is almost completed. Though we are taking a very very laid back approach it has been really fun to pick topics and begin the process of educating at home–though some would argue that educating actually beings in utero. At least every couple days I am so grateful for the decision we have made, especially when I look at my precious boy who is getting to be quite the little man.
In the midst of a crazy busy week last week we got the most recent copy of Homeschooling Today Magazine
Even though I am a writer and reader I try to limit the number of subscriptions we hold for the sake of budget and money, but this one magazine is my preferred resource homeschooling information. Whenever it comes I am tempted to drop everything and read it cover to cover and If ever I am feeling overwhelmed with the magnitude of the task ahead of me, I find it a great encouragement. It is a great feeling when someone asks the children if they go to school and the children confidently say, “we go to school at home.”
Next winter I think we will start a reading program and beef up the family cooking and of course this summer is all about nature studies even though we are officially off.
