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 firstname.lastname@example.org. I'd love to give you some words of encouragement or help you with curriculum choices.
