Homeschooling is the frontier, the heroic battle, the society-building of this age. Just as hard as these, homeschooling absorbs my time, talents, and treasure. My children are the only legacy I will leave, probably. But more than this, I delight in the opportunity I have to finally get the education I missed! By teaching the kids at home I am educating two generations at the same time.
I used to can what we grew in the garden, make all my own bread, and to clean the house on a regular schedule. I miss these, but they fell by the wayside. Not only am I teaching my own, but I am a Challenge B tutor for Classical Conversations. That means I teach 13-15 year old students in seminar once a week: Algebra, Latin, Logic, Literature, Debate and Science. Preparing for the 6 hour day of instruction on top of teaching my own and keeping house keeps me moving.
Letter’s from Heart’s Content was created to give me a venue for publishing once a week. Since I teach writing, I knew I should use the tools myself and write, even though my schedule is full. Writing is how to learn to write. It is cheaper than taking a writing course!
