Tricia - I just don't know how you do it. Your background in education - and the fact that you have girls - must help though! I really admire your dedication. You really take motherhood to a higher level.


I agree with Kate! I considered homeschooling for a brief time. My husband was pushing it more than I was. But after some extensive research on it, decided this was not the route for me or my kids.

Hi Tricia,
For some parents, home education is something that is never considered until there are un- solvable problems in school. Home Education becomes the last resort. That was the case for us last year.

However, having done a lot of research (in a very short period of time) and spoken to a few home-educating parents, I just knew we could make it work.

As we started talking to people, it was amazing how many people knew a family who were home-educating.

A year down the line, it was the best thing we could have. It has strengthened our family. It has given me an opportunity to really get to know my teenage daughters that I don't think I would otherwise have had.

If you are considering home education, it is better to actually research it before hand and not wait until you have got to make the leap!

Great blog by the way.
With abundant blessings.
