Ask any homeschooling mom and she will tell you that the number one comment she hears from other people about homeschooling is....."Oh, I could never do that!" It's usually followed with..."My kids do not __________________." (listen to me, like to be at home, care.) And then comes-"My kids would drive me crazy!"
Having lived the homeschooling life for 11 years, this style of education is near and dear to me. Now that I have children in public school and home school, I have an even greater appreciation for the homeschooling way of life and for those women who do the job well.
It's true; homeschooling is not an easy choice. What you need is a plan. Organization. And you need to live by that plan. Of course, you must be flexible so you can take advantage of the many learning opportunities that come your way. But, bottom line. You've got to have a plan.
I am actually going somewhere with all of this. I'm leading up to today's featured blog.
Today's blog belongs to a true educator and one organizing, decluttering mommy! And her blog reflects her mission-to give her family her very best efforts.
Heather at Blog, She Wrote writes about her family life and their homeschool lessons and experiences. (Don't miss her Five In A Row lesson journals in the left sidebar-organized by title, of course! And if you have never heard of Five In A Row, you'll be well-acquainted after visiting this blog.)
Heather is quick to add organization tips and showcase her love of crafting, while injecting much needed humor and encouragement.
Heather has a special interest in preschoolers. If you have preschoolers, this blog is a must for your blog roll.
This blog is jam-packed with so much great stuff that I know I haven't even scratched the surface!
