Holding our breath—tight! Lips pursed! Cheeks stretched like bulbous drums! We are venturing into the crazy-go-nuts–never thought we’d be that family—amazing world of homeschooling.
I hadn’t planned on blogging again, not ever—no, never, but as we prepare to take this great, unconventional leap, splashing about in the water, I have realized it would do me well to have a place to come up for air, to take a deep breath, and to document our bright spots, our discoveries, our triumphs. Homeschooling is something I love talking about—but I pity the persons in my life who have to give ear to my enthusiasm when they’d rather be listening to just about anything else. Curriculums! Philosophies! Early Childhood Education! Montessori! Reggio Emilia! THE LOVELY CHARLOTTE MASON! LIVING BOOKS!! If you’d like to hear me talk about the subject offline, I will still happily wag my tongue. But here, no one expects or rather, longs for me to change the subject, and therefore I shall take a big, burpish gulp of fresh air, grin like a fool, and wax on and on about the joys of homeschool. Like I actually know what I’m talking about. Because, really? My oldest is not yet four.
Okay, so I may have yet an abundance of experience tidied up in my meager reserves of home education knowledge and wisdom, but I have studied the subject for the better part of three years, and continue to do so. Yes! So stay tuned, Mom!
