The life of homeschooling is really more about home than about schooling. It's all about creating and maintaining a safe, loving, stimulating, nurturing, memory-filled haven for all those that God plants around our tables. Education is certainly part of that, but it's my desire to see homeschooling families put the "home" back in homeschooling and cherish each day as one of the building blocks of the next generation, a generation who will leave our homes with steadfast hearts and a testimony of God's faithfulness.
My grandchildren gather around the table with my youngest children to explore the wonders of creation, to hear the fascinating stories of history, to cut and paste and color and laugh and eat. I hope to share with you some of the flavors of Granny's House in this place. . . .our ways of doing things, the lessons I've learned in more than two decades of the homeschooling life, the best curriculum and other resources, a picture now and then of our activities, maybe a recipe or two along the way, and other ideas that might help you and your family to weave learning with all of life.
Please, feel free to click on "comments" and leave me a question or observation or an idea of your own. You'll have to register with blogspot to join in, but I hope you'll take a few minutes to do that so that this can be a community of moms (and grandmoms!) sharing to a greater extent than ever before possible what God is teaching us. You can share the site with any who might be interested in our conversations here regardless of where they live or where they are in regards to the homeschool journey.
Welcome to my House!
