A Homeschool Life Down Under
One of the wonderful things about blogging is that you get to meet others from around the world that are on the same journey and recently I met Natalie who lives on the last frontier - Alaska! Like myself she has been homeschooling for many years and has a real heart to share encouragement for those new to homeschooling or those who are considering it. You will also find information and reviews on the resources she has found useful for home education. As Alaska is a place of great natural beauty you will not be surprised to find that nature study is also an integral part of their studies! She asked me if I would write a guest post for her and share about our homeschool life down under. I was happy to do this for when I was just starting out in the days before blogs had ever been invented and the internet ran at snail's pace I was so blessed to find a website that had a series of articles on home education which were such an encouragement to me. They introduced me to unit studies and turned our learning at home into a much more exciting experience. That website belonged to a homeschool mother who lived in Alaska! Now it is my turn to write an article that may encourage someone on that side of the world!
So if you are looking for inspiration and are interested to find out a little more about our homeschool life and how we teach our children at home please do pop over to Alaska and meet Natalie. Her website and the link to my post can be found at www.mapleleafcircle.com
I pray that you are having a blessed and productive week. I am making mulberry jam today as our black weeping mulberry is absolutely laden with fruit which is ripening ever so quickly with the arrival of hot sunny days. The snakes are out of hibernation and just yesterday we had two venomous snakes close to the house. No more running barefoot across the grass!
My next post will hopefully be a giveaway so watch this space!
