I Want To Homeschool, But….(Part 2!)

April 26, 2013

We’re guest posting again over at Cheeky Bums Blog!  We’re tackling another one of your homeschooling questions!  This time it’s how in the world can we keep up with the homeschool and keep some semblance of order in the house.  Hey, we know the challenge!  The housekeeping doesn’t stop because the kids need to be taught about the civil war or need a spelling test!  And oh that laundry….the bane of my existence!  😉  With seven (soon to be eight!) kids creating an enormous amount of dishes, laundry and general messiness, how can we keep our heads above water?!

We feel it’s really important to educate not only our children’s minds, but their hearts and their hands.  Meaning, that in addition to academic knowledge, our job as parents is to instill in our children a love for the Lord and a genuine affection for one another (hearts) and solid work ethic and life skills (hands).  Therefore, we see housework, yard work and helping one another maintain the house as every bit as important as Math, English, and Science.”  READ THE REST AT CHEEKY BUMS!
