A great post on homeschooling

Posted by on Apr 17, 2010 in blog links, personal | 3 comments

Wes at “a mission-driven life” has written one of the best homeschool posts that I’ve read in a long time. It’s called “Homeschooling and Classical Education: What are you doing to your kids?” Primarily, I like that Wes has removed the Christian, holy, godly, etc. rhetoric that some add to the idea of homeschooling. Read the post. It’s worth the time.

We decided to homeschool our children 7 years ago. The reasons that we chose to homeschool are personal, and may not apply to anyone else. We never planned to homeschool, but we’re glad that we did. If you’re interested in homeschooling and need help getting started, read Wes’s post. If you still have questions, leave me a comment or send me an email. I don’t have all the answers, but I can tell you some of things that we’ve done over the past 7 years.

    Thanks for the link love brother! I also am very open to advice on homeschooling. Our oldest will be in 2d grade next year, the others are 5 and 2. So any advice you can give would be great! What model are you using? Curriculum?

    If anyone is interested, here’s the next post in the series. Sorry for shameless self-promotion, but I’m trying to be of service

    Our journey started like yours Alan. Now my oldest is 19 and a junior at Arizona State University and is doing great. We homeschooled him all the way to college. We are a big family of 9 kids. I am so thankful that God directed us to give homeschooling a try. It is the single best thing we have ever done for our family. For generations our family will be blessed because of homeschooling. I could not agree more or encourage others to at least give it a try. I am thankful you brought it up.
