We homeschool our two kids, a daughter who is 13 and a son who is 5. Well really at this point, most of the focus is on our daughters education – our son is just the tag-along sponge!
I have been homeschooling for over nine years now, so according to “them” I am a homeschooling veteran. This basically means, I’ve blown it a few more times than a newbie has and that I have hopefully learned a few things along the way.
My area of expertise in the homeschooling world is in science and classical education, both of which I simply adore! I found the Well-trained Mind just before our daughter’s first grade year and haven’t looked back. Now, that doesn’t mean that we always follow every jot and tittle, but it is certainly the compass for our homeschool journey.
Just in case your wondering how we get it all in, check out my 5 more tips to help you get it all done.
I’ve written about classical education a few times and here are a few of the more popular posts:
- What should I do if I find Classical Education in the middle of a cycle?
- Is it really possible for classical science to be rigorous
- Classical science for the grammar stage student
- Classical science for the logic stage student
- Classical science for the rhetoric stage student
I also love to mix up solutions for those of you who are young in their homeschooling journey. Check out these posts for a pinch of homeschool inspiration:
