Adventures in Unsell Land

I am Jen, mother to 6 children ages 13, 12, 11, 8, 7, and 4. We are in our 10th year of homeschooling and love it! We are somewhat eclectic in our approach to homeschooling and at the heart of our homeschool is great Children’s literature. We are a book loving family. We collect children’s picture and chapter books and our current home library contains a little over 5,000 of them. We enjoy using unit studies in our homeschool. As a family, we enjoy taking day trips together. We love the arts, festivals, museums, music, and movies, but most of all we enjoy just being together.

Why do you blog?
I began blogging as a way to keep our long distance family and friends more in touch with our daily lives and to share all the fun things we were doing in our homeschooling. That has evolved in the past year or so into writing reviews for several publishing companies and writing Homeschool product reviews as well.

Why do you homeschool?
We homeschool because first and foremost it is the path that we feel God has called us down. We have been homeschooling since 2001 and since that time we have seen the many benefits for our large family in doing so. Among many of those benefits is that our family has so much time together, rather than apart.
