Homeschooling Memoir Week 1: All About Me
The Kick-off theme for weekly Homeschool Memoirs over at the Homeschool Blog Awards is "All About You." Or me, that is. A perfect topic for bloggers because obviously we all like to talk about ourselves to a certain extent.
The meme reads: "This week, we want to hear about YOU. The author behind the words. The Momma behind all the homeschooling kiddos. Just write up something about you, your family, and your home. How long you’ve been homeschooling and why you decided to homeschool. It doesn’t have to be anything lengthy at all, but we’d love to hear it! You might include a family photo too!"
Since today was our first day "back to school," I'll start with a picture of my youngest two in our what is now our school room. This is the living room of our attached apartment. We've never used it as living space because it's been my parents' winter dwelling for the past 8 years. But since they've bought their own southern house just a minute down the road, we've decided to make this into our school room. We've got a long way to go in getting it just the way we want it, but the kids had a great time in it today. And I love not using our own dining room table as school headquarters! I moved our old dining room table (above) into the apartment for school. It's lovely to not have to clear off stacks of books before supper each evening.
Anyway, the rest of this week's meme can be answered in various places on my blog:
* Want to know all kinds of things about me? Get a big cup of coffee and click here. I do ramble a lot about myself on this blog.
* Here's how we got started homeschooling, and here's why we home school: the intangible version and the practical version.
If you manage to click on those four links, you'll know a whole lot about life here in SmallWorld!
