Hi, I’m Kelly and I’m a homeschooler. I’ve got 5 great kids and one supportive husband. I originally thought the purpose of this blog would be to share all the great and “original” ideas I’ve learned since I started homeschooling. However, in purusing the web, I quickly learned I was out of my league. Beautiful lapbooks with hand sewn bindings that detailed the parts of a flower, organized school rooms with well planned filing systems, professionaly designed and downloadable chore and reward charts, photos of smiling children in clean, matching clothes making a pyramid from sugar cubes-who are these people????
I rely on workbooks. My filing system is lots of binders; labels and covers optional. I will offer downloads in boring Helvetica font that will probably be loaded with spelling errors. The last time I got ambitious and attempted a Charoltte Mason style nature study, everyone wound up in tears.
Which type of homeschooler do you strive to be? But realistically, what type of homeschooling actually takes place in your home 95% of the time? I thought so. Around here, it ain’t the Lyceum, but it’s home education that works for us.
