How Did You Start Homeschooling?

Onlysometimesclever offers her story of why she homeschools and how she got started.

“I wanted to provide for them the academic excellence, freedom, and support that I did not get, as a student.”

Click over to her blog for a whole lot more to the story.

I love personal stories like this. They are stories we can relate to. We’ve either been there, or are in the middle of “there”.

Have you written your story on your blog? If so, link it here in the comments. If not, consider writing your story on your blog, and then linking it here. Then we can have a nice collection of “How we started homeschooling” stories.

I can’t wait to read them!

    I too love to read personal stories. One of the great things about homeschooling is that everyone comes to it from a different place and then we all accomplish it so differently.
    I wrote some of how we came to homeschooling in this post–http://cellista.wordpress.com/2007/03/01/a-little-bit-about-our-school/

    We homeschooled a few years ago, doing “school at home” for a year then sent the two youngest kids back to school for what we thought was “their own good”. Our youngest son had many issues that put him in special ed and our daughter just wasn’t into doing workbooks at home. When my youngest son died suddenly, sending anyone to school was unthinkable. I wrote about it here.
