- Genuine excitement..usually from a fellow home schooler
- The "oh I think that's great" with the look of "oh I think your crazy"
- and finally the "well I could NEVER home school"
I belonged to at least 2 of those categories at some point in the not so distant past, I'm sure I've given people the I think your crazy look when they told me they home schooled and I know I've said I could never do it. So how did I get here you ask? I started reading different homeschooling sites on the Internet trying to help my struggling son when I came across Simply Charlotte Mason, now I had heard a lot about Charlotte Mason and her ideas on education but until I read them and started digging into it I just didn't quite get it. This "new" way of educating children to teach them to think for themselves through great books and observation made sense to me in fact I wished I had be educated this way. I'm not going to get into Charlotte Mason right now but you can read more here at Simply Charlotte Mason. Check out the free e-books at the top of the page.
After my first week of homeschooling I like it because
- you get to shape what your children learn based on what they need
- you get to do fun things like make Turkish Delight when you read The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe just so you know what it is and what it tastes like

Our house is far from perfect and in fact need a lot of work but it's my space and I choose to make it beautiful because that brings me joy. It is my desire to make our home a relaxing, inviting,refreshing place where Christ dwells.
