This year we embarked on our homeschooling journey with a 1st Grader and Kindergartener! One of the questions I get most often is "Why?" But the reasons for homeschooling are so varied for each family and often can't be summed up in one thought. I think it's a decision each family needs to make on their own - and depending on the family and life circumstances, that answer isn't going to always come out the same.
We have friends who homeschool, attend private and public schools, go to charter schools, attend co-ops, and even the university model - and so the "why" and "how" is not really a meaningful discussion, as I believe each family must come to their decision on their own.
It's the experiences that matter the most, and that's what I intend to share. And I believe those experiences can happen in any environment given the right circumstances!
We actually started our "school" 3 weeks ago, so here are some of our "first day" pictures!
