We are a family of four living, learning, and loving together.
L is 9. He is about to start 4th grade. He attended public school for kindy, but then we started homeschooling his 1st grade year. Here is an archive of posts from those years: from old posterous blog. He likes Legos, Minecraft, Star Wars, and pool play.
C is 4. He is about to start his second year at the same private nursery school that L attended at the same age. It was chosen specifically for its play-based nature and lack of classroom computers. It’s laid back and loving. He will attend 3 mornings a week. He likes to do anything his brother does.
I [K] am a former public school teacher. I taught kindergarten and elementary ESOL. I am not anti-public school; we just find that homeschooling fits our lifestyle and L’s learning style better. For now. I refuse to be bound forever to any one style or approach. I take it one year and one child at a time.
T is computer security expert. Raised as an ex-pat, his perspective is unique.
This blog is mainly about our homeschooling, but occasionally drifts into other areas of life.
