Our Homeschool Family Update
Updates are below.
Hello. Our homeschool family is so happy to share our experiences and hope that they will be of interest and value to you.
Like the pro-life cause which embraces all people who believe in the sanctity of life, we join with all who support homeschooling. This website welcomes and is grateful for each and every visitor!
First, the introductions...we are a homeschool family of ten, Dad, Mom, two girls, three boys, one son-in -law who is as dear as a son and two granddaughters. Last but, not least, is Max, our border collie, who actually rules the house. We are Catholic, and our faith is the foundation, the motivation, the constant in our lives.
In 1987, when our two oldest children were in kindergarten and fifth grades, we began homeschooling. What prompted this (at that time) radical decision? The school in which they were enrolled, decided to initiate an explicit sex education program, in K through 8th grades. My husband and I couldn't believe it; nor could we allow innocence and natural modesty to be stripped from our children.
We tried to persuade officials and other parents to stop the change. That failed. So out of necessity, we took our children out of school at the semester. Immediately, we ordered our boxed curriculum. We were on our way and never looked back.
It didn't require much time to discover the many advantages of home education...academic, spiritual, moral, and yes, even social!
Today, through God's grace and the prayers and support of home educators like you, the labors of homeschooling are coming to fruition.
Again, thank you for visiting our website. Homeschoolers are a community of dedicated, thoughtful, selfless people of which it is an honor to be a part. You are in the thoughts and prayers of our family...and we humbly ask that we be in yours.
