Where do I start?
I can remember when we first started homeschooling. Or I guess I should say when my husband first suggested it. Boy, did I think he had lost his mind, I could never do that?! Or so I thought at the time. I just remember telling myself I at least needed to learn as much about it as I could before I totally wrote off the idea.
I read every book I could find on the subject and I then quickly realized this was something I simply had to do. I did take it slow... just to see how it would work out, and you know what? It was fantastic!
I went to all the blogs, and websites, and as many of us do in the beginning I wasted way too much time and money on programs that never really fit with my children's needs, nor did they fit the ideal education I envisioned for my family. As a family of seven there are always constant interruptions, so I needed something that was flexible. If one child is sick, soon enough they all will be. I needed something my older children could work on independently while I was sick with the pregnancy flu ;) or while trying to take care of myself and a new baby. I needed something we could all still manage while rebuilding our home from a natural disaster. That for me was choosing my own living books, making my own schedule, and following my homeschool dreams, not those of someone else.
I hope Classical Charlotte Mason will give you the tools to weather the seasons in your own homeschool journey. YOU GOT THIS!
