Eleven years ago our family started this home education journey with the birth of our oldest child. We never did try a public or private school option. Homeschooling is all we know.
Our family’s experience is limited to elementary aged education. So I’m certainly no expert on the subject of homeschooling, but I have learned a few lessons of my own along the way. Perhaps these are even more important than what my children have learned.
We’re all learning together and that’s one of the amazing benefits of home education.
These “lessons learned,” and still being learned, have come out of my insecurities and the question, “Am I doing this right?”
I hope what I’ve learned will be an encouragement if you’re just starting out or like me, have been at this a few years.
