I've been homeschooling for about 10 years now. My oldest child went on to public high school (which was good in some ways, in others, not good), and my younger 3 are still at home with me. I love homeschooling and I hope I'll be able to do it for many years to come. The best part is that I get to learn so much right alongside my children.

And how is it going with you?

Currently homeschooling seven.

We've been hs'ing 14 years now. Our oldest graduated last year.

We have at least 16 more years of hs'ing to go to get all our kiddos graduated. Wow, it sounds like a lot but the years truly go fast.

Curious: What style of hs'ing do you lean towards?

The beginning years we start with Five in a Row (Charlotte Mason-ish). Ages 6-8 we do traditional textbooks, more specifically Rod and Staff. Once the foundation is firmly set (reading well and a good grasp of math) we tend to become rather eclectic. Along with the core subjects lots of journaling, nature studies, and life skills.
