One of the key benefits of homeschooling is that we can switch things up.
We can do what works best for our family and for each child and change things around as needed.
We don’t have to work 9-3.
We don’t have to work Monday – Friday.
We don’t have work at a desk or around a table if our children work best outside, on the lawn, with a pet in their lap.
We don’t have to keep using that textbook if it’s driving us both crazy.
We don’t have to finish that project if our child is bored with it because he’s already mastered the concept.
We don’t have to do a book report if it will turn the book into a chore rather than a delight.
We can work evenings or weekends or holidays or in the car.
We can use books, documentaries, audio books, community groups, volunteer opportunities, co-ops, work experience, nature trails, workshops, libraries, museums, galleries, parks and more.
We can be flexible. We can choose. We can fall in love with the journey.
