Our homeschooling journey began almost 13 years ago, when my eldest daughter entered kindergarten. Now she is finishing up her senior year and studying for a farrier course she will start in the spring. How time flies!
We use a sort of eclectic mix of materials, mostly self created and inspired mostly by Charlotte Mason and the Principle Approach. The most inspiring and helpful bit of homeschooling advice I have ever received was at a small conference by Katherine Dang in which she encouraged us to teach according to Isaiah 28:10.
“For it is precept upon precept, precept upon precept, line upon line, line upon line, here a little, there a little.”
This idea, to take my children alongside me to teach them “here a little, there a little” has profoundly influenced my homeschooling and my parenting as I strive to slow down, appreciate now and inspire my children to explore the world and reflect on all they are learning.
And that is what I write about here at Roscommon Acres: Slow down. Learn from life. Appreciate life.
And grow just a little bit every day.
