I have been blogging for 4 years. I have been married for 27 years to my wonderful husband Larry and I am the mother of 2 wonderful boys. We have built our family through adoption. I used to be a medical assistant. I love to read, crochet, find money saving deals, volunteering and blogging!

Why do you blog?
I started blogging to share our daily lives with family that live away from us. I enjoy blogging as it is an outlet for me and a way to journal our days.

Why do you homeschool?
We home school for various reasons: I love being with my children and no one knows them better than we do. We love to learn together and wanted to be able to have more of a say in what and when they learn.

    At kindergarten level, you don’t have to worry about speillng you don’t even have to worry about reading, really, if you’re child isn’t quite ready. If the child isn’t ready, then trying to teach him or her to read will only be frustrating for both of you.If he or she is ready and wants to learn how to read, a good book is Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons by Siegfried Engelmann. My youngest daughter went to K at the public school and they tried to teach her to read we had nothing but tears and battles over reading lessons all year long and she felt like a complete failure. Then we homeschooled in 1st grade and used that book she was reading on her own by Lesson 30 without a single tear shed! I highly recommend the book.Good luck..
