I bet you didn’t know…

I bet you didn’t know that Big D and I homeschool our kids. Yup, we do!

Of course that really means that I provide the emotional, motivational, encouraging, and financial support and Big D does all the work. The Princess is in 2nd grade and has been homeschooled since Kindergarten. The Padawan started this year, Pre-school. When the Wookie is old enough, he’ll join his brother and sister at the kitchen table, and the same goes for the Baby. (Side note: I’m gonna need a new nickname for the “Baby”, since he’ll not be a baby, eventually.)

You got questions? Do you think I should have added something specific in this post? Well then, put it in the comments and I’ll add it, or do a follow up post.

Last week, when we hit the garden park in Ojai, the Princess and I took a bunch of pictures. I called it a photowalk, and put the photos up on my Zooomr site, here. The photo at the top is the Princess actually working on her schoolwork. She’s practicing composition and lighting techniques with her school-only Polaroid. I’d also like to point out that many of my own subjects in my shots were chosen by the Princess. Enjoy.

  1. Thanks Adam. The real short answer is that we purchase our curriculum from one of several vendors who provide terrific curriculums just for homeschooling. Many of the publishers are faith-based, focusing almost entirely on Christian homeschooling. However, I know there are secular homeschooling publishers also.

    Materials are easy, catch the sale rack at Target! Or anything like that. For more specialized materials you can get a lot of great stuff from a company called Lakeshore.

    Thanks for bringing your questions here. This a great place for this discussion, and I welcome all your curiosity.

  2. I like the idea of homeschooling. Currently my 3 year old is in pre-school and it is working out great for us all. But when he gets to go to kindergarten and beyond I’m not so confident. I have several issues I worry about, that I wont get into here. But I was wondering what was the impetus that made you decide to homeschool. How do you set curriculum? What about text books, materials etc? Is there any issue with discipline, both for parents and kids?

    Very curious to hear your thoughts.

    Adam
