My name is Ellie and right now as I sit typing this I can look around my crowded dinning room to see 7 children of various ages and stages doing what we call home school. The baby is in his seat eating Cheerios, the two year old is crawling around under the table searching for tipped over crayons, the older children are doing math, handwriting and creating beautiful works of art. One is humming a tune, there’s a screamer and few who are deeply focused on their task. It’s not glamorous nor organized most of the time but its our life and we want you to join us on this real life home school journey.
Homeschooling creeps into most areas of our life, so this blog will not only discuss curriculum choices, scheduling (or lack of), field trips and record keeping but so much more. I will discuss meal planning, home organization, the importance of connecting with other homeschooling families in your area or online, family chores , basically the list is endless. The other important thing I want to share with my readers is this is real life and sometimes it’s messy. I will never claim to be an expert because after 8 years of homeschooling I have learned that it is ever changing. I will never have it down to a science and the only consistent factor after all these years has been Christ, he is the center of it all and He never changes.
Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and tomorrow . Hebrews 13:8 (ESV)
So please join me on this journey and possibly laugh, learn and be encouraged.
