This is year 14 for our family homeschooling and I personally feel that it has been a huge success. I am often asked, “why?” I homeschool because I can give my children a quality Christian education that the public schools can not. I can work one on one with the kids that need the extra help ( and the ones who don’t) and we can have more hands-on activities and projects as well as field trips.
Some years have been better than others. Some books/curriculum my children like better than others.
One year we did entirely lap books and that was a blast, but not really an option for my high school aged kids.
Here are some of the curriculum that we are using this year as a family. The first 2 weeks, we start out slow with only 3 subjects: Science, History and Literature. Once the kids get in the mode of schooling again, we add in Math, grammar and electives.

Elementary History/Literature: Notgrass Our Star Spangled Story (New and not even here yet) https://history.notgrass.com/elementary/
LifePac Science: 11th grade: https://amzn.to/2mXkoDN
We are using this science book for my littles and altering projects to fit 3-7th grades: https://amzn.to/2O0hE3Y
The one thing that I have learned is that for our family a pre-set full curriculum from one company does not work. I piece together what works best for us.
