Happy Birthday #2 O' Blog

I thought in honor of my second birthday out here in bloggityville I would share the very beginning of this here journey, way back when things were called "Homeschooling in the Peach State":

August 15, 2005
My very first post ever!


Introduction to "ME"

I am not new to reading blogs, but this is my first attempt at putting my thoughts out there for public consumption. I have been a SAHM for 9 years, ever since we brought our beautiful Libbyline home from the hospital. Sweetcheeks followed after almost three years, and John Deere Green speedily followed 16 months later.

I've done a few part-time freelancing jobs over the years, in addition to a stint recently at a local novelties shop where my kids referred to me as the "Candy Lady". Now, I am certifiably taking the plunge into "at-homeness" as my husband and I have chosen to bring our children home to school.

We are both college graduates, one of us with multiple degrees, and we have researched the topic of homeschooling exhaustively. Little did I know when this whole idea began to germinate in my head months ago that the world of homeschooling was so extensive. I have been pleasantly surprised as well as completely overwhelmed at all that is available for homeschoolers.

That touches on another topic (information/choice-overloaded Americans), but I'll save that for another blog. Goodness knows I can't touch on everything today. (Still haven't gotten back to this two years later!)

I am hoping this will be a place for me to spill my thoughts, musings, and experiences on a variety of subjects. Yet, because it is what drives me primarily, this space will be overflowing with my faith, my journey of homeschooling, and my family.

I love being a mom, and I am privileged to live in a country and a state that gives me the freedom of teaching my own children in my own home in my own way. A way that will take into account their interests, their learning styles, and their natural bent that God uniquely gave to each of them.

Hope to hear from other homeschoolers, as I know I am not a lone ranger out here on my own. I need and welcome support and encouragement from those who have walked this path ahead of me.
