Intro to My Life
Hello! This is my first time having a blog and I am excited about starting one. My dh and I have been homeschooling for eight years and have loved almost every minute of it. We started homeschooling when we were in the military, and our special needs (cardiac problems and learning disabilities) son was suffering in the public school system. After several moves, we realized that it was a national problem, not just one particular school. We fell in love with the Charlotte Mason educational style immediately and have used that style ever since. We do dabble a bit in unit studies occasionally. After years of not being able to get pregnant naturally with a second child, we became foster parents, and adopted a sibling group of two. While we were still adopting the two, we became pregnant with our youngest dd. Ahh, how to go from one to four kids in 17 months!!! It was a great adventure that is just now calming down! Our adopted children have a range of disabilities that include Reactive Attachment Disorder, Cerebral Palsy, and Fetal Alcohol Syndrome. We are blessed that all of our children are thriving, and we are learning how to teach each of our unique kids. We hope to meet others and get great ideas.
