Those of you who know me well and understand the homeschooling lifestyle will know the title of this blog is meant to be tongue-in-cheek. Those of you who don't know me well or are unfamiliar with homeschooling as a way of life will likely be a little shocked, or at least a tad weirded out. That's okay.
I know homeschooling is still a strange, mysterious, even ridiculous notion for some folks. I started this blog to shed some light on why I took the leap to educate my kids "non-traditionally", how I got started, what I'm doing now, and to show you my reality. It's fun. It's frustrating. It's great. It's insane. And I love it.
I will not try to convert you to the idea of homeschooling. I promise. But I will show you my successes, address the stereotypes and prejudices, and heck, I'll even let you in on my failures. I believe in keeping things real.
What I want readers to know, above anything else, is that I love my kids and I take their education very seriously. I expect them to have integrity and compassion. I expect them to be well-informed, independent thinkers. I expect them to learn to love to learn and have a strong work ethic. I am doing everything I can to prepare them for real life. I'm not perfect, but I'm determined. And I love those little buggers. I want them to succeed in all areas of their lives--academics, spirituality, their careers, their relationships.
