    Love hearing stories like yours where you were involved in education and decided to try homeschooling and it was successful! I was a teacher for 10 years and decided to stay home after my two girls were born. I’m seriously thinking about homeschooling and stories like yours give me encouragement to go that route!

      I am not going to lie, this is the most fulfilling job I’ve ever had. I can’t encourage you enough to go for it!

        Yay! Thank you! I’ve only started looking into homeschooling. I read parts of The Well-Trained Mind: A Guide to Classical Education at Home (Bauer and Wise) and I really like their approach and all the resources they list. I’ve read a few other books, but I’m still looking for more! Any recommendations for a mama just starting to look into homeschooling?

        Truth? I didn’t read a single book before I started. I talked to people I knew who were doing it. (And it was scary. That’s ok. It scares Everybody.) I really do recommend Hirsch’s What Your X-Grader Needs to Know series for year-to-year help (although I only use them as rough guides these days), but your best bet is to keep making contacts through bloggers (such a wonderful community) and talk to people in your area who already homeschool. There. Enough parentheses. lol

        Lol, thanks! Yeah, I’m quick to make friends and ask questions because it can be pretty time-consuming to sort through articles while chasing a few kiddos around. I’ll check out Hirsch’s book too! But…I have a few more questions, so hopefully, you’ll bear with me 🙂

        Any favorite bloggers you’d recommend checking out? Thanks!
