Mission statement: On this blog we explore why homeschooling can be a better option for children and families than a traditional classroom setting. We'll also explore homeschooling issues in general, educational thoughts, family issues, and some other random stuff.

Christmas in the park
Janine and I believe music is an important part of education. All of our children have taken lessons for various instruments and sang in homeschool choirs. This Fall Janine and our younger two daughters have been practicing with a homeschool band every Friday morning. They have been part of this band for about ten years.
Attending class and learning something can be a lot of fun and interesting, but putting the learning into practice elevates the learning process and the mastery. I am sure the performance tonight will be a bit stressful, but it will also be a lot of fun. And there is a bonding process which happens when you go through stressful times.
