We are a homeschooling family. We never thought we would be. We just never thought much about it, frankly. But somehow, homeschooling found us, and it fits us. We love it.
Since we love it, and since it’s such a big part of our life, it should come as no surprise that we enjoy writing about our adventures. Alas, the education of one’s children is a personal decision, and we’ve hesitated to write much about our experiences for fear of offending people. Eventually we decided that was just dumb.
And so we write, but under the following disclaimers:
1) We are not homeschooling experts. Our curriculum is life and the world around us. Learning is led by the interests of our kids. The way we do things works for us. For everyone else, results may vary.
2) We love teachers. Kim was one. So is Jason’s aunt. They are some of the most dedicated, selfless, and amazing people on the face of the earth. Teachers we love; it’s the system we question. It is our experience that many teachers have the same questions and frustrations we have.
3) We believe that most parents want the best education for their children, and the decision as to what’s best for them is a personal one. It is not our desire to convince anyone to homeschool. It is simply our desire to share our adventures on this blog. The thoughts are our own. They may not be yours. That’s cool. If you don’t agree with them, that’s cool, too. If you find yourself offended by something you read or have a problem with way we do things, it might just be better for you to find a different blog to read.
4) That being said, if you are new to or curious about homeschooling, and have sincere questions (not the lame, passive-aggressive “did you know you’re ruining your kids?” variety), we are very happy to help where we can. Email us! Just keep in mind disclaimer #1.
