Why we started Homeschool

I was about 18 when I realized that being a stay-at-home mom was an option.

I was 21 and student teaching, when I realized that homeschooling can include co-ops.

It was also in student teaching when I knew I didn’t want to be teaching in a public school.

As a Student Teacher, pregnant newlywed. . . All I wanted to do was be a stay at home mom. And I wanted to homeschool my kids.

It took about 7 years for my husband and I to find the same page, when we decided we wanted to travel full time and homeschool.

There are many reasons why I, personally, wanted to homeschool. I may share those at a later time. . . However, there were several things that were important to me, that I wanted us to have as a family.

Things that were important to me:

*Traveling more/field trips

*My kids learning about the world by experiencing the world

*Hands on learning. For my kids to have an environment that nurtures a love of learning. My kids having an environment that nurtures a love of reading.

*Us having a say in our children’s curriculum

*My kids to explore and learn about their interests

*My kids learning the skills they need to fly the nest: Chores, cooking, fixing things, finances, etc. . .

*Learning outdoors/outside free play and exploration

* And many, many, many more reasons.
