My family’s journey: Homeschooling

To many people, the idea of homeschooling their children is frightening and overwhelming. To be honest, I felt that way at first. I was afraid that I would not be able to teach my children all they needed to know to be successful in life. I was afraid that they would miss their friends. And to be perfectly honest, I was afraid of being judged by friends, family, and society as a whole. But you know what I decided? I would “get over it” by researching, observing, and praying for courage. Over the past several months, I have found a Christian based co-op that offers a weekly class for my children, field trips, and parent support groups and classes. I have observed a class and met some really nice people. I also found a great free online curriculum (Easy Peasy All-in-One Homeschool) that I think is going to be a lot of fun with crafts and projects that will help me teach them so much more than they will learn in a traditional school environment. I am still a little nervous, but I am actually more excited now. Since this is my first year homeschooling, I know I still have a lot to learn and I will try to share most of those lessons learned with you. I would love to hear about your family’s homeschooling journey as well so leave me a comment below or email @ freedomfarmtv@gmail.com.
