I have been blogging and homeschooling for less than a year. I am the mother of one beautiful 5 year old daughter with super curly hair. I love to get out of the house and go to festivals and parks. I embrace life and love living it!

Why do you homeschool?
We homeschool because my daughter is very bright and wanted to learn how to read when she was three. We felt like teaching her to read early would make her bored in school with other kids. We tried putting her in a preschool instead of teaching her to read. I went and observed some of her classes. She was sitting on her hands and bouncing around trying to keep quiet because she knew all of the answers. Several times I saw her whisper answers to other kids who were struggling. Very soon after that, we decided to make the commitment to homeschool through the end of elementary school.

Why do you blog?
I try to blog everyday. I used to post all of our homeschooling activities on Facebook. I soon realized that some of our family members who wanted to know about our lives also chose not to use Facebook. Blogging was the best alternative to reach all of our family members.

    Thanks Monica,The whole socialize/socialization thing is such a biarzre thing for folks to focus on! My kids have social interactions with plenty of people the principle difference being that my kids socialize with people of ALL ages and with people who come from ALL walks of life! I’m not confident that my childrens peer groups are necessarily the most qualified kiddos to help inform my children about life! Having a conversation about the merits of peanut butter and jelly with a fellow 6 year old at lunch time OR sharing our picnic with the 60 year old botanists who told cool stories about her trip to the Amazon while we were taking a walk out at the nature preserve hmmmmmm. I’m gonna call the latter one a richer experience!
