Hi, I’m Shelly, a Christ-following mom to eleven great kids ages 2-22 and wife to my husband, Shawn. Homeschooling is my passion, and in order to keep myself from talking everyone’s ear off about it, I decided to write this blog. We’ve tried almost every homeschooling method there is and have settled happily as relaxed homeschoolers.
In today’s world, education has become something that’s looked at as if it were something that can only happen in a school setting. Nothing could be further from the truth. In the U.S. alone, over 2.5 million people are now homeschooling their children, and I strongly suspect this number is extremely low because in just the state I live in, people aren’t required to register their kids with the school district until the age of 8.
I know there are so many people out there who are fed up with the school system and are intrigued by the thought of keeping their kids home but are afraid that they just couldn’t handle it or afford it.
The reason I started There’s No Place Like Home was to let people know what homeschooling is really all about- that anyone who puts their mind to it can do it and to let them know that homeschooling is nothing like school!
So forget about all of those preconceived notions of what education has to look like and go for it!
The only thing education has to look like is what your kids NEED it and WANT it to look like.
