|Lilah's first week of homeschooling January 2010|
I have been homeschooling for almost a year! Lilah just realized this yesterday. I feel like 2011 is going to be simply amazing. We have been through many of the adjustment phases of withdrawing children from public school. We have met new friends and their amazing families. We have realized we do not want to school-at-home. We have adjusted our philosophy on education. We have struggled to find balance. We have found a new peace in our home (well....most days!) and through all this we have learned. Learned about what education is and is not. Learned more about who we are as people, what we like, dislike, and want to learn more about. We have been new places, places we may never have discovered before. We have had fun times, really really fun times.
I feel like in a way, we are just beginning. The road ahead of us has an undetermined destination. What fun it will be to journey along it.
Here are my top five blog posts from last year. I think the fact they were the most popular is because they share the different phases of becoming a homeschooling family. They were cathartic to write and I am glad they were read by so many. In case you missed them here they are again.....
