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.

High School History/Literature:   Notgrass Exploring Government: https://amzn.to/2uZA3qL

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. 


For just as through the disobedience of the one man the many were made sinners, so also through the obedience of the one man the many will be made righteous.
