I have a confession to make...

Until very recently I thought blogs were a waste of time. I mean seriously who really wants to read about everyone else's life. Shouldn't we all be busy with our own lives? My husband started a blog many years ago, and I teased him about it. Still when I started toying with the idea of homeschooling, it was blogs of other homeschoolers that made me feel that it was not only a normal choice, but a wise one too. For a long time all the homeschoolers I met were fundies who were scared their children might view evolution as fact if allowed in the public school system. Through blogs I began to see that homeschoolers are a diverse group. That I could be me and homeschool. I still think that reading blogs instills a sort of voyerism that seems a bit strange to me, but I suppose it is no more strange than watching tv dramas every night. So it is with some nervousness and a lot of excitment that I start this blog. Hopefully it will serve as a sounding board for ideas and a record of our homeschool (and life) journey.
