Welcome to Our Back to School Series {2017 Edition}

2018 Planner

 

We are beginning our 27th year of homeschooling. Twenty-seven years. 27. 2-7. TWENTY SEVEN YEARS! How can that be? I remember so clearly those early days, when our oldest was a bundle of energy and I wondered if he’d ever sit long enough to learn how to read. As I gear up for a new year with four children still at home, I’ve been taking short trips down memory lane. We’ve had a lot of fun and learned many lessons together.

  1. Hi, Linda! What do you know . . . I am about to begin my own 27th year of homeschooling! I have only one student with two years remaining, but I am still enthused about homeschooling after all of these years! I am so grateful that the Lord directed us to this way of life; I wouldn’t trade these years for anything! I’ll be following along with your new series . . . always learning.

    (I discovered some of your comments on my blog weeks after you submitted them. I am behind in almost everything this summer! I am hoping to have time to chat with you soon!)

    • Isn’t it amazing, Cheryl? It’s hard to remember what life was like before homeschooling filled our days, and yet I remember the beginnings so clearly. I agree, I wouldn’t trade it for anything. My children have taught me so much. and God has been ever so faithful to provide. I remain awe-struck!

      I spent a little time catching up myself recently and enjoyed visiting your little home on the web ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Your series sounds like a lot of fun, thinking back over the years of homeschooling. And 27 is a lot of years – good for you!! I’m starting my 20th year and feel like I’ve been doing it forever, but it’s still so rewarding, and I couldn’t imagine doing it any other way.

    • 20 years? that’s terrific! Adding up all the years can make a person wonder where the time went, but yes, it’s been time well spent ๐Ÿ™‚ Hope you have a fantastic 20th year this year!

  3. Wow, I’m entering my (now-seeming-pidly) seventh year! I can’t lie – I’m a little nervous for the high school years in a few years, but I’m determined to homeschool all the way through. #FriendshipFriday

    • Hooray for 7 years! There is so much available to help with high school classes, you’ll do fine when the time comes. It really isn’t as scary as we all think ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. I am looking forward to reading the wisdom you have to share. We are embarking on our 5th year so I am a baby compared to you! I can’t wait to learn what you have to share.

    • 5 years is terrific, Lori! Every year is a little different, and every year I learn a little something new. I wouldn’t change this homeschooling lifestyle for anything ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for taking time to visit this week!

  5. Hi Linda! Excited to read your series. I love your spin on it so far. Very helpful imformation for slim budgets and small homes. Off to read…

    • Thanks, Kemi ๐Ÿ™‚ I hope your time here is blessed! I’m enjoying this series – it’s getting me energized for our new school year!
