We homeschool. We live life. Often the two aren’t separate. I cook breakfast and the kids help (home economics). My daughter tells me her latest epiphany about Lord of the Rings (analyzing literature, and improving thinking skills).
We do have some curriculums to cover the main subjects like math and reading. But we also learn many subjects through everyday life. I thought I would give you a glimpse into recent happenings in our family to show you how learning often looks for us.
I was recently taking pictures (to try and learn more photography skills!) and I captured this picture of my daughter doing one of her favorite subjects: Art! I never have to ask her to draw because she does it all the time. My job is to praise her good work, and to bring home books and videos that teach her more about drawing and art.
We recently went on a road trip just for fun. We ended up going to a mall and went out to eat at Whole Foods (the perfect place to eat if you have food allergies or intolerances-they list every ingredient in their food). Here is my oldest daughter doing her favorite subject: literature (aka-reading). Van schooling is awesome. We get to spend time together as a family, and all that driving leaves time for getting some school done. Sometimes I practice times tables with my younger daughter while I am driving.
And here I am trying to learn how to take pictures of myself with my camera. I figure the kids are getting a blogging 101 lesson. 🙂
Recently we had some icy weather which is unusual for us. So, my daughter took some pictures. She is also interested in blogging and learning photography. That is one of the most wonderful things about homeschooling-I get to share my passions with my children. Who knows where that will lead them in the future!
