Very Exciting

Soooo, can I tell you how excited I am to have this blog page. I don't know why I didn't do it sooner:) I have sooooo much information to share, I hardly know where to begin.

I think I will start off with my experience in homeschooling. Ready..... here goes..... I have 5 children and have been homeschooling for 8 years and really see no end in sight for now:) When I first began the adventure of homeschooling, I thought I would be in a group of 'pioneer type' people. You know the type I'm talking about. I thought I would turn into one that would churn butter and grow organic fruits and veggies. Not that there is anything wrong with that:) But boy, was I completely wrong.

My first exposure to homeschool families was when I attended a Florida Homeschool Convention. It is held every year in Orlando during a long weekend. Wow!!! Was I amazed to see that I was not alone in this adventure called homeschooling. I saw many, many families of all sizes and none of them looked like 'The Little House on the Praire' type. (I love that show, by the way!!)

I was also shocked on how many resources were available to me!!! Actually it was a bit of sensory overload:) But nonetheless very interesting. There were many avenues to pursue in the new chapter of our lives and was unsure what to do. I was afraid that I would not pick the 'right' one.

Well, let me tell you that every year has been basically a trial and error with the various curriculums. I have tried many, Sonlight, Abeka, Alpha Omega, Saxon Math, Bob Jones, etc. The list goes on and on. One curriculum that my kids and I truly enjoy is Bright Minds.

Have you heard of them?? Well, if you haven't you must visit my site

There are sample pages you can print out and give to your kids to see if they like them. I am sure they will!!!:)

Well, this is all for now. I will post more about specific items that my kids enjoy and how you can incorporate them in your daily activities. Until tomorrow:)
