I’m looking over my old text documents of things I’ve written over the year, and I have files that I’ve saved from 1990, but there’s very few mental meanderings about our home-schooling adventure. I’ve been home-schooling since 1998, so I guess that makes me a dinosaur. We have done some pretty weird things in the name of education, and I wished I had written it down.
Now before all 5 of our monkeys are grown and finished with this chapter in their education, I want to at least document some of what we do. In years to come our activities may be so foreign to the current paradigm or it may be the norm, but unless I jot some of it down, I won't remember a thing.
