Like many others, I never thought I'd homeschool my children. I had no idea what that even meant! But here I am, 13 years later, definitely with more gray hair, but wiser and happier. My oldest graduated from our homeschool June 2017 and I have 3 more to go.
While 3 of my children have always homeschooled or self taught in high school, one has attended school thru 6th grade because that's how he learned best. Experiencing education from "both sides of the fence" has allowed me unique perspectives and definite ideas about how children need individual education plans, however that may look for each child.
We are eclectic child led homeschoolers. I may be my children's teacher (mostly a guide and facilitator), but I learn new things each year right along with them (more than in school for sure!).
In my spare time (ha!) I love to read and revel in books! Books are life. So is coffee.
