This is a Glimpse
So, its really no surprise that I homeschool my kids...because you can see it on my blog title. I will tell you right up front that I had NO INTENTION of EVER homeschooling my kids. One, because I'm NOT a patient kind of woman and Two, I really wanted to go back to school and finish my own degree. However, that is NOT what God had planned. My husband and I prayed about what was the best fit for our family since I would be the main educator of our children. I wanted to try it out with our eldest daughter's Kindergarten year. It wasn't so bad, but I learned that I would have to either begin drinking A LOT to survive future homeschooling escapades or learn how to teach my children different ways. We chose ACE as our curriculum because of its structure and it had every core subject. At the end of Natty's first grade, I realized that the math portion of ACE wasn't a good fit for her and we changed the next year to Math U See. This has been a good change for us and while its not always perfect, it seems to be working well enough for the girls' ages and grade levels. But on one such occasion (because if I say this happens a lot, someone considering homeschooling won't go through with it LOL) in the midst of rounding numbers, I was frantically searching for a fork to stab my eye out and the phone rings. Our poor friend and his mother in law got to hear me 'dealing' with my girls not understanding why 2 does not round up to 10. Yeah, you get the gist of what I'm saying. It had been a full hour and half of sheer TORTURE. So! In light of this occasion, our friends (who also homeschool their kids) introduced us to this hilarious group of people who make real life situations laughable. I hope you enjoy!!!!
