Okay, on to the post: The SECOND in a series on Homeschooling!

Starting Out: The Early Journey

If you're considering homeschooling, then there's a good chance you're wanting to plan ahead. 
And for good reason.

It's wise to count the cost and see if this would be a good fit for your child(ren), yourself and your lifestyle. Because in the end, YOU (and your spouse & your children) are the only ones that can determine what will work.

For us, we began the journey just over 2 years ago.
We said we'd take it year to year.

It was a learning curve, pulling all of our children out of school full-time, but I did see a lot of good fruit from the decision. 
We also realized that not every child fits the homeschool 'mold' either...

And for next school year, we are putting our eldest two children (ages 12 & 14) back into a private Christian school, while homeschooling with the younger two, baby in tow :)

What about you? Have you thought about:

-WHY you want to homeschool?
-WHO will primarily do most of the schooling?
-the TYPES of learning styles that will work for your child(ren)?

There's so much to look at, & it's really a learning curve, no matter which way you slice it :)

Here's a number of blog posts, from a diverse number of bloggers, about starting out & the early journey of exploring homeschooling!

  1. My husband homeschooled my oldest for kindergarten and I homeschooled her last year for grade one. We love it but we are also going year by year and seeing how she responds to our teaching and activities.

    Thanks for sharing (and for linking up to the #SHINEbloghop).

    Wishing you a lovely weekend.

    1. Thanks Jennifer for stopping by and hosting the SHINE hop! I always enjoy your link up :)

  2. I love learning people's different perspectives on home schooling... I am on the fence with my daughter this summer. She is entering middle school, and I have heard story after story of how saturated the culture is with such brokenness. It terrifies me, really. But I'm going to give her a chance.. and stand 'on guard'.
