Dan and I will share stories about us on this blog. Our family, our lifestyle, our adventures. Every family is different; remember that! If you find joy and peace in what you do, then great! That is wonderful. Just because I say I will never join a homeschool co-op doesn’t mean I don’t think you should. (And who knows, I might change my mind someday!) I want to encourage you to think differently, look outside the box, and see your family as a lifestyle. Enjoy your life. Enjoy your spouse. Enjoy your kids.
In particular, for those who home educate (or are thinking about it), embrace homeschooling as a lifestyle. Once I started doing that, I felt happier and more relaxed.
Let me give you some examples that have worked for us.
- Breakfast and books
- Museum and zoo trips
- A hike through the woods
- Boating on the Mississippi
- Setting up at church each week
Everything you do is education. Learning is happening all the time.
Be faithful. Be creative. Be thoughtful. Be adventurous. Be balanced. Be together.
