As mentioned in my bio above, I homeschool my two boys and I just realized the other day that we have been doing it for three years! I can’t believe how fast time has gone by and I’m so glad that I have been able to spend so much time with them, watching them reach milestones, watching them make connections. It has been a wonderful three years. My youngest is ready now to start getting a bit more involved with “school” at our house and today we began a new routine. Each year, we try new things in order to keep learning fresh and we try not to use a curriculum. There is just so much information out there for kids and we really work with the things they are into at the time. This year though, we’re trying something a little different so we’ll see how it goes. I’m calling upon old fashioned methods and materials because they seem so rich in content and focus. Both boys will be reading from McGuffey’s Readers and at night, we’re going to read classics like, Swiss Family Robinson and Treasure Island. I am a huge reader and it’s important to me that the boys are exposed to really good literature in addition to the things they read about Spider-Man and Sonic the Hedgehog. Anyway, here is a photo I took of my boys this weekend. They’re getting so big and I know, three years from now, I will look back in amazement that they were ever this young.
Hope all is well in your world!
