Homeschooling...Here we go...


This begins our journey of homeschooling. I am excited, but very nervous about how this will all work. Hoping that keeping up with this blog will keep me somewhat "accountable" to continue with homeschooling this school year.

We have tons of resources thanks to Grammy, who "unloaded" her cupboards from when she was schooling us. It also brings back lots of fun memories of growing up and learning different things.

I was most nervous about homeschooling this year just because of the ages of our kids. However, Ellie (4) REALLY wants to learn how to read; and Benny (2) BEGS for ABC time everyday; Gabe (1) loves coloring and "doing" the crafts with us; and Abby (3 weeks) just loves being cuddled... And they are CONSTANTLY asking about crafts, "spearments" (experiments), and wanting to cook things.

Preschool can't be that daunting, can it? I decided to do some research online, and found TONS of GREAT sites that I can reference, and downloaded a ton of EXCITING worksheets and such to use.

Some of my current favorite resources include:

We also have most of the My Father's World set (, Bright Beginnings (, Before Five in a Row (, and list of recommended books (Sonlight (, My Father's World, etc...)

So here goes nothing, or something, not quite sure yet...Buckle up and enjoy the ride...Can't wait to find out where this adventure takes us...
