Welcome to Homeschool Stories!
This video is what I hope will be the first of many. Part of my dream for this website was to create a hub for homeschool moms and dads of all backgrounds to be able to share their experiences and perspectives with others.
Why do I think this is so important? Well, we homeschoolers can often feel lonely. We question whether or not we’re doing everything right. We wonder what’s normal and what isn’t. We often have to defend our choice to others instead of finding the community we long for.
It’s my hope that Homeschool Stories can be a place where we can gain the perspective, inspiration, and encouragement we need to continue on in our own journeys.
Homeschool Stories: #1
The first of our Homeschool Stories series comes from a good friend of mine. Jen Mackinnon of Practical, by Default never planned on homeschooling. In fact, it wasn’t until she was enrolling her eldest for school that she was thrown into home education unexpectedly.
You see, her firstborn already knew how to read before going into school- and that was going to be a problem for the teacher and the classroom.
Join us as Jen shares how having a child who knew how to read early pushed her headfirst into the homeschooling world. She also shares some reflections from her 13 years of homeschooling experience.
Share your homeschool story.
How did you get started homeschooling? Has there been a particular challenge you’ve faced? A unique situation? A blessing you want to share? It doesn’t matter what your experience level or background is- we welcome homeschoolers of all stripes here.
If you’ve got a story to share, email abi at wovenhomeschool dot com with the subject MY HOMESCHOOL STORY for more information. Your story does not need to be in video format- this was just Jen’s preference. 🙂
