Homeschooling


Why do I homeschool?  Some will think I am crazy.  Actually, I have a few family members that I'm pretty sure think I am LOL.


I started to home school my kiddos six years ago.  They were going to a private Christian school and when my daughter came home complaining of being bullied, I hit the brakes fast!  I spoke with the principal and really got nowhere.  I talked to my husband and he was definitely on board to home school here.  Well, I said if I am going to do this thing, then I'm homeschooling both of my kids.  I've never looked backed.













My kids were using the A Beka curriculum, which I loved, so I chose to use them for homeschooling as well.   I finally got the hang of it I think the third year!  This year my kids are in 10th and 12th and it seems as if we are at a different place. 

I prayed about it to see what God wanted us to do as far as curriculum goes. And this is where it brings me today.


I started doing some research for a high school co-op or umbrella school.  Nothing.  I couldn't believe there was nothing in my county.  I wander if I could start a co-op myself?  Well, I was talking with my good friend Annette and she mentioned she was thinking about starting a co-op.  Say What?  Well, the two of us have came together and we now have our new co-op.  I love it!  All the kids love it too!  


Now that I think about it, I have two aunts that were school teachers and my grandmother was one as well.  I remember playing "school" with my cousin Ashleigh when we were kids too!  I guess I just have schooling in me!!!


So, don't feel discouraged.  I just graduated my last one so I'm on a new journey now!  If you ever need any help or just don't know where to get started, feel free to email me at wendy@littlehousesimpleliving.com.  I'd love to give you some words of encouragement or help you with curriculum choices.
