About Our Family
We are a family of three (well six if you include the two cats and the Beta fish) that lives in the mountains of NC. I’m wife/mom and I’ll be the primary poster on this blog. I work three days a week outside of the home (after working full-time outside our home for the past three years) with a non-profit organization. I love drawing, painting, knitting, crocheting, sewing, being with my family, and visiting new places….oh yes, and science, anything science! My husband works remotely from home as an accountant and bookkeeper. He’s funny, smart, flexible, incredibly dedicated to his family, and an all-around amazing guy. He loves reading, history, playing the drums, and exploring all that the high country has to offer. We have one son who is 12 years old. On this blog we’ll call him NDEW. He loves animals of all kinds, aviation, Legos, Star Wars, a wide variety of roll playing computer games, Harry Potter and Phineas and Ferb. To be honest, the whole family loves Phineas and Ferb. NDEW also happens to have something called prosopagnosia, more commonly known as face blindness. You can read more about that on this blog’s prosopagnosia page.
I started this blog to keep a record of our homeschool journey. I thought it would be fun to look back in five years and see where we started and all we’ve learned. We just started homeschooling in December of 2012, but we are definitely not new to the idea of homeschooling or even to the thought of it being a possibility for our family. On the other hand, it is typical for our family to turn almost anything into a learning experience, so in some ways, we’ve been “supplemental homeschooling” since pretty much the day our son was born. You’re much more likely to find us spending our free time at a library or museum than just about anywhere else. We have embraced our nerdiness whole-heartedly around here!
In this blog we’ll be chronicling our learning adventures, resources we find, and any other interesting information we feel like passing along. We may even have NDEW do some guest-posting along the way about what he’s learning. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions!
