We’ve been homeschooling since the beginning (2006) when my oldest was finally kindergarten age. (I’d been planning to homeschool since before she was conceived!) and I have no plans to end at this point!
At the writing of this (May 2020) I have a nearly 15-year-old high schooler and a homeschool graduated student that will turn 20 this year. You’d think that I had this homeschooling thing down pat by now, but no…I am the perfect blend of disorganized and industrious…forever working on finding the right combination of effective learning and fun, hopefully, without wanting to beat my head against a wall at the end of the day.
I am also newly, as of May 2020 (officially) diagnosed ADHD and am still learning how to change our homeschooling for the better now that I am finally medicated and can move forward knowing for sure now what I am working with. Having a diagnosis means that I know for sure now the cause of so many of my struggles and what tools to seek out for help. SO much relief!
I also am one-half of the “Savvy Homeschool Moms“, a secular homeschool podcast that gives listeners a regular peek into their homeschooling families’ lives. Every episode of The Savvy Homeschool Moms is jam-packed with homeschool related info including tips, links, book & resource recommendations, reviews of homeschool products and interviews of fellow homeschoolers and curriculum developers.
