I am a widowed parent who has decided to homeschool her two boys, D-10 and P-9.  It is always an adventure but one that we enjoy very much most days.  (Yes, we have our off days too!)  Both boys are totally different in terms of interests and learning styles so homeschooling is a challenge for me.  I was the model student as a kid and learned well in the traditional classroom setting.  D-10 and P-9 did not get my genetic code as students.  They would like to ditch all books and learn everything hands on with as much noise and action as possible.  Our homeschool lessons can be quite lively.  Praise God we don’t have to be stuck doing everything the traditional way!
