If you are joining us from the blog hop, WELCOME! My name is Angi. My husband, Tim, is a ghost writer on here, too. We have two terrific boys, Little T (7) and Drama King (6). Little T led us down the homeschooling path when public school was unable to met his unique needs. He has Apraxia (speech disorder) and unofficially diagnosed with ADHD. So he is a ball of energy that is understood only 25% of the time. His dream job would be a professional wrestler. Drama King, on the other hand, is neurotypical and very bright. He aspires to be a million things. Earlier this year, he wanted to be a architect. Just last week, he wanted to be actor. Today, he says he wants to be an animal doctor. It’s been an interesting journey with these two guys.
As for homeschooling, we do not follow a curriculum. We are life learners, unschoolers, or whatever else you prefer to call it. Learning is all around us and we provide the tools for our boys to find learning in everything. Does that mean we don’t pick up curriculum from time to time? Of course not. We provide whatever method works for each child. Homeschooling has allowed us to provide stuff early for Drama King and hold stuff back until Little T is ready without the fear that Drama King becomes bored (as I did in school) or Little T learns to hate learning all together (as my brother did).
I hope you’ll stick around for a bit. I’ve got a lot going on behind the scenes because we just got back from our mini vacation. Some giveaways are coming. A handful of reviews including an educational site. Oh and make sure you bookmark or follow us so you don’t miss Blogmania, a two day giveaway extravaganza. We will have multiple prize packages each valued over $50 and you can hop around all the other Blogmania blogs and enter to win all of their prize packages. Blogmania prizes all combined is already over $30,000. Maybe you win one prize, maybe you win a couple prizes, but I can almost guarantee you will find a blog that you didn’t know existed but cannot stop reading.
I’m heading off to bed but will be hopping around the other blogs tomorrow.
