I have to find a good stopping point for our 14 year old, before he goes to Colorado for the summer. We also have to start looking for new curriculum before he gets back. I have so many ideas and can’t wait for “next year”!

Curriculum

Hmmm, I wonder if he’s as excited as I am…

Check out Silly’s School to get a glimpse of how WE homeschool.

I love, love, love a blog post I just read from Unschoolery because it helped motivate me to keep doing what I’m doing. Most don’t understand but, to me, it makes sense. My boys aren’t completely “unschooled” because they do have a set curriculum (that I make up for them), even though it’s nothing like the ones “regular school” kids have. In addition to that, they are allowed to do whatever it is they like to do (Sometimes, even I don’t think it’s enough). But, in the end, I believe it’s their life and they are learning what THEY want to learn. Isn’t that the point in educating children…to get them to learn? I think homeschooling is working for us and sometimes I do question it, but only because I listen to other people’s opinions on the subject. (I really need to stop doing that)

love what you do

The following is a link to the blog post I read from Unschoolery and I encourage you all to read it as well, so you know what I’m referring to.

Homeschooling: Am I ruining my kids life?

Note: I haven’t read anything else in Unschoolery, so I would like to state that if you have any questions or concerns about their blog, don’t ask or tell me about it. I am only interested in this particular post.

If you get a moment, feel free to visit our homeschool website, Silly’s School, so you can get a glimpse at how we school.

LMAO….OMG, this video never gets old. It’s so freakin’ hilarious. Especially if you are a homeschooling parent (with a sense of humor). I love it!

Homeschooling was something I always wanted to do but I didn’t bring myself to do it until the boys were 9 and 7 years old.

I started homeschooling when I did because, in my opinion, the boys were only being taught what was necessary to pass state required testing. I didn’t like the idea of them being expected to be exactly like the 20 or so other children in their classrooms or that they were more interested in what other kids thought of them than they were about their education or who they were as individuals.
