We homeschool! Have for 9 years now...but my second oldest began public school this year & my oldest will be in a public high school next year (their choices). The littles will still be home with me for the foreseeable future.

Its been so rewarding seeing my 12 year old excel in 7th grade! Such a pat on the back for me, since so many in my extended family doubted my homeschooling decision! It has truly been the biggest blessing for all of us.

Straight As, all pre-AP/honors classes, star athlete (football, track & field, soccer), tons of friends...all the teachers love him & tell me what a good leader & great student he is!

Hey ,

I'm from England , I'm not home educating as of yet as my little boy is just under 1 ( few days ) . But I decided when I was pregnant and very early on that I will be home educating him .
I'm very happy with my decision and so is my partner . It's nice to talk to others that are already doing so .

I love the idea of child led learning, time to play, spending time outdoors & in nature, encouraging creativity and freedom. Having a one on one teacher to help her follow her interests at her own pace... So much exciting potential really!

I also feel like school can knock the confidence and enthusiasm from some children. My little girl is So confident and excited about learning, I wouldn't want her to lose that spark. We're already having fun learning about dinosaurs and the solar system!

I'll be homeschooling next year, my oldest is almost 4 so he'll be starting preschool/kindergarten work. He already knows a lot that would be taught in preschool. Most of what we do right now is pretty informal, next year we'll start getting more into a routine.

I was homeschooled and am very excited to be teaching my kids
