Never Say Never...
So...back when A was a baby, I was perusing Pinterest during a middle of the night nursing session. I came across a blog post that caught my attention. The title was something about 10 being the magic number . The magic number to what I wondered. I read the blog post and was hooked. The blog was Catholic All Year. She had only been blogging for a year, and I started back at the beginning and read every post and continue to do so. She homeschools. She writes about lots of interesting things, AND she writes about homeschooling. I liked her family life. I still never thought I'd do it though, but I think that's when the seed was planted.
Since then I've read lots of blog posts from a variety of bloggers that have been successful homeschoolers, this book and this book, and I currently listen to a podcast about reading aloud to your kids that I LOVE.
I know not everyone is able to homeschool or even wants to, but I think God was working on me. I couldn't completely get it out of my mind, and we had tons of conversations about the exciting possibilities. And together we decided this is what was best for our family. In fact, here are 100 reasons why it is good for families. So far, we are really happy with our decision to do it. It seems our kids are pretty happy too.
