Home-Sweet-Homeschool

 

The Vision...one of them anyway!

I believe the picture above, gives a little glimpse as to what was in my mind's eye when I dreamed of homeschooling.  A quaint, well-appointed little school room, filled with literature, art, music. The curriculum would be a blend of Christian and Classical, Charlotte Mason...a little Montessori thrown in for color!  A Comstock Nature Study every week, and a History of the World timeline. Leather-bound Dictionary on the table and a globe in the corner, all tucked into a bright and shiny-clean school room, supplied with the basic needs of the students; not too many things, not too few. Enough to inspire, but not overwhelm...

(insert the sound of an 18-wheeler screeching to a halt...)

 

And Today ~

Well, it has been several years since we kicked off that first day of school way back when, and I must say things have changed considerably!  Instead of the small orderly school room of those early days, we have invaded the living room, taken over the dining room and turned the former "school room" into a nursery!  Instead of two students, there are now four kids + a bonus returning student - my husband!  As opposed to the Charlotte Mason days pictured above, a typical day now might look something more like this...  

I guess you might say I've loosened up a bit over the years, and as you get to know us, you'll see why.  These days we have alot to balance, and we try to highlight most of those things in our many pages.  We do this for encouragement, because we have a hunch that WE are not so different from YOU...and a little encouragement goes a LONG WAY doesn't it?
