Questions – Advice – Things that are easier to answer and give in small groups, one on one, over coffee. When I know who you are, your strengths and weaknesses. When I have an idea of how your children are wired. I’ve watched them. Interacted. Come to love them.
You ask me a question, and I can tailor my advice to suit your family.
So far, on my blog – I have not spent a lot of time giving advice. It has been more of a report of – what this crazy homeschool family is up to.
The question we’ve tried to answer as honestly as we can – is – What does a life lived away from public school look like? What does a life lived following passions look like? The biggest – What Do You Do All Day???
Hopefully, I’ve sparked you on to ideas of how to spend the 22 hours outside of intentional seat learning with algebra and essay writing. And I will continue to share our lives with you.
I have felt strongly on my heart to share some of the one on one conversations with you. As if I knew you. As if we were like minded. And if you’d stayed around this long, I have to believe that we are, at least in some ways.
I’d like to step out of the box of music appreciation, math, science, and grammar, and share – HOW. How did we do this. What steps can I look back on and think about what we’ve done – and the results it has produced.
I’m not into formulas. We have two unique boys, individuals even opposites of each other. That’s my disclaimer. It’s always a heart issue. A prayer issue for us. A leading by the Spirit. If I am going to start sharing the how we did it, what we wish we’d done, and what we’d do again – I don’t want it translated as a formula for cookie cutter amazing boys. You have your amazing children.
So, I ask for grace and mercy, as I share the inner parts of how we’ve dealt with the harder more intimate parts of running the family. Things that would pertain to raising boys no matter what location they are in when the multiplication drills gets set on the table.
If you have a direct question – Please email me – firstname.lastname@example.org. I get them often all week long, so I’ll just start on recent conversations.
Thanks for sticking with me these past years – It is joy to share our lives with you.
