Homeschooling really is a great fit for our family and the decision just keeps being confirmed to us as I see our kids blossom. I guess if I was to label our homeschooling style, it would be Classical with Charlotte Mason leanings. We are mostly following the plan laid out in Susan Wise Bauer's 'A Well-Trained Mind'. It is going so well and I love the flexibility and creativity it brings out in the boys.
Some things we love about homeschooling:
|You can be Thor or|
|Captain America one day...|
|And wear your dressing gown the next.|
|Little ones are eager to learn from a young age.|
|The local hangout for the neighbourhood kids is directly across the road, so we can meet up with friends anytime.|
|We can interrupt lessons to watch the rubbish truck. Seriously, this man is so well loved here that he needs to be on the Christmas Card list.|
So, my homeschooling friends, any thoughts or advice? Do you have any troubles with your state department? Any tips you would like to offer?
