the first days of school – guest blogging at so fawned

It is hard for me to believe, but after four and a half  years of talking about it, the day quickly approaches; the day we officially start our homeschooling adventure.  Of course, like most people (whether they realize it or not) we have been homeschooling since the beginning, but call me old fashioned because September 3rd, 2013 marks the official beginning for me.

Today, I share our some our reasons, goals, and personal educational history on So Fawned’s series entitled the First Days of School in which she has gathered other bloggers interested in sharing their stories and decisions which brought them to where they are in their own schooling and parenting journeys.  It should be fascinating.

I hope you enjoy my contribution and well as the other wonderful people who have and will share.


go gently + be wonderful

    Best of luck with your homeschooling. I never had the courage to do it mainly because we live in France and french is my second language, so I didn’t feel capable in teaching my kids. Also it’s not the done thing here, not that that should make any difference! Fortunately my kids go to a tiny village school which they love.
    Popping over for a read at So Fawned now.

    Look forward to reading it. I think I’m a homeschooler at heart, but my love of teaching has become a requirement to live our farm dreams (ie paying the mortgage with my income as a teacher!) :) I liked the expression I heard once, where a woman described herself as a “Waldorf AFTERschooler”….that kind of works for me and how we do things! :) We feel really fortunate that our rural school has very small class sizes (my son will graduate in a class of 8, my daughter in a class of 10!) and that I teach where my kids go to school.
    We are open to what our journey brings and hope/plan to take a year off to travel with our kids before they’re grown! Lots of time to figure those things out!
