A new beginning

August 14th, 2010 by Nate

It’s been almost four years since Mandi and I decided to homeschool our children–well at that time, one child, Levi.  Two more children and a lot of changes later, here we are.  We recently joined the Home School Legal Defense Association (HSLDA), and on October 1st, Levi will have his first official day of “Preschool.”  The ironic thing is we have been doing that for several years.  Starfall has in many ways helped both boys to learn to their letters and even read.

We plan on following a neo-classical model of home education most specifically based on The Well Trained Mind.  It is is hard to believe that more than four years have passed since I became a father.  Time really does fly.  It is now time to take that next step together as a family and begin teaching our oldest child, Levi.

I hope you will come back as we post our progress, events and thoughts.

    I bet he is excited. Hard to believe that little baby I held at moms that one Sunday is even old enough to be a preshooler. Next thing you know you are going to be talking about Naomi being in preschool -lol. Glad Mandi is able to home school. I look forward to seeing his progress on the website. And yes Nate time does fly doesn’t it. Kitrina

    Thanks Kitrina. Mandi has posted about the name. And I have one that will post tomorrow.

    When I filled out the HSLDA forms Naomi’s preschool start is September 2013. Sad part is 2013 is closer than 2006. It will be here before I know it.
