Homeschool

Updated September 2009

Hi! We have been homeschooling our 9 children from the beginning. 
This school year, 2009/2010, is our 19th year of homeschooling. Our 
children are now: Stephanie 21, Tiffany 19, Timothy 17, Jonathan 16, 
Kimberly 14, Benjamin 11, Joshua 10, Jennifer 7, and Jessica 2.

Since purchasing Marilyn Howshall’s Wisdom’s Way of Learning books, 
during the fall of 2004, our schooling has taken some major changes. 
We have used a great mixture of curriculum over the years. By far, my 
favorite is the unit studies by Learning Adventures. This curriculum 
is why we are able to step out and do WWOL, as it has given us the 
proper tools – in learning how to research through “living books”. 
Once again, we are using LA to as our Unit Study!!! This 
comprehensive curriculum covers everything but math for grades 4th 
to 8th.
This year we are doing “lapbooks” to record all the things that we 
are learning. We are also in the process of using cards for our 
timelines.

A few years ago, we started using Math U See. We had been
struggling with multiplication and division in our prior curriculum. 
Math U See has made a world of a difference as they are quickly 
catching up to where they should be. 

I have 3 in High School this year, we have already graduated our 2 
oldest. The boys are using Notgrass History (includes Bible and 
English), Science Overview (Stout) and Math U See. 

We have also started using the WorkBox System – wow has this really 
helped in our homeschool. Be sure to look for further updates to 
these pages as I share what we are doing this year.
