Welcome to My Homeschooling Blog

This is a new adventure for me, as I have never written a blog before.  However, having been encouraged by a couple of friends to write about something I know, I'm taking the plunge. 

I'm actually a "seasoned" homeschooler, having homeschooled my three children through graduation.  I now have six grandchildren, and with their mothers' help, we are homeschooling the children.  

Here they all are on Christmas morning this year.  They are now ages 4 through 10.

We have a special group of kiddos, with various "issues" as they say now.  Three were preemies, the smallest being only 2 lb 10 oz, and as a result we deal with some things that relate to delayed development in several areas.  I will be addressing some of these issues and what we do in future blog posts.  The other three children were full term, but two of them still ended up in the NICU because of breathing problems, one with a small hole in one lung.  Only one of the children was able to come home with her mother three days after birth. And we have only one boy, so I am always looking for ways to allow him to "just be a boy'.  Those of you with boys know what I mean.  

We have put some of the children on special diets, and I plan to discuss this too later on.  I am always on the lookout for different things to use with the children as they learn in different ways.  It is an adventure every day.

Hoping to make some new friends as I go along, and am always interested in your input.
