Why They Homeschool

Friday, April 20, 2012

I wrote before about our journey on learning about homeschooling here. Earlier this year, we unofficially began to home-school Max. It's unofficial because I don't really use any 'formal' curriculum (he is still preschooler after all); just being intentional in teaching him mainly reading, writing, and math, in addition to teach him about God, His Words, and 'Practical Life' skills. I can't thank God enough for the chance and the experience. It is such a blessing and privilege to be along his side learning new things and acquiring new skills. We take this one year and a time and see how it goes.

Remember my post on my favorite blogs? I was surprised to learn that many of them homeschool their children. Some of them post the reasons why they chose to do so. I just put the link here for my own reference.
