  1. I’m so glad I found your site! Actually I’m a little sad I found this article… I have a dream of homeschooling, but my husband is against the idea with excruciating measures! Why can’t marriage and family life be easy? Ha! We will continue to pray over the decision, because as an educator myself, I KNOW everything you’ve written is the absolute truth!

    1. Oh Dana, I am glad you found me too! I am sorry you and your husband are not on the same page, that is difficult. It is certainly not my intention to make anyone feel badly about where they are in life, just to encourage someone along their path. Remember you can do most all of these things even if your children are in school. Just make your time with them engaging and educational. I will be praying for you!

  2. It’s so refreshing to see others homeschool their children. My last one graduated last year and I homeschooled mine since elementary school. We even had a graduation at our co-op. I’ll always cherish my memories of getting to spend the day with my kiddos. It’s so rewarding too!!!

  3. These are wonderful tips! Our children all attend a very small private Christian school in our town, which we love! I have never considered homeschooling, but one of our daughters was adopted from China at the age of 6 1/2 (now home 1 1/2 years).. and is struggling some with reading and learning to love reading. I’m totally going to check out the five in a row program!

    1. I am glad you could use these tips! I love Five in Row! Also, Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons by Seigfried Engelmann is what I have used to teach my children to read. You could easily do the short lessons in the evening or on the weekend with your struggling reader. Best wishes and thanks for commenting!

  4. Jenn, what a great post! I love that homeschooling has become more acceptable in society. Some of my best memories are of spending those years learning alongside my kids as we conquered History and the Constitution. Glad to have found your site.
