And Away We Go!!!

Hi There!  My name is Brooke, and this is our story.....

We are blessed with four amazing kids.  Our oldest is a senior in college, studying to be a nurse.  She is far from home, and we miss her bunches, so visits home are always special times.  We began homeschooling when she was in second grade and have never looked back.

Our two boys are in high school.  I used to keep a family blog, but now the boys are at an age where they don't particularly love having their pictures constantly taken and stories about them recorded daily.  They both attend homeschooling classes outside of our home; each in a setting that caters to their particular needs and interests.  They study hard and play even harder, and while I am far from a homeschooling expert, I can honestly say that the high schooling years are GREAT!

Our youngest is the exclamation point at the end of our family.  She lives life to the fullest with a joyful boldness.  She attended mother's day out, preschool, and kindergarten at a local church.  This year marks the start of our homeschool journey with her as we blaze a trail into first grade, primarily using FIVE IN A ROW as our curriculum to guide us.  This blog will record our adventures together.

I love the homeschooling life.....reading, creating, experiencing, DOING.  It isn't always easy, and it's hardly ever tidy, but I treasure the memories we have created through the years, and am exceedingly grateful for the bonds this lifestyle has created in our family.

Thanks for stopping by to follow our story.....
