I began homeschooling our children in August 2009. At the time, we had 2 sons: one in 5th grade and one in 2nd grade and 1 daughter who just tagged along!
In June 2010, we brought home 2 more sons, ages 10 and 5 at the time.
In August 2010, I began our 2nd year of homeschooling with DS1 in 6th grade, DS2 in 4th grade and an ELL student, DS3 in 3rd grade and 2 little tag-a-longs, 5-year-old DS4 and 5-year-old DD (both in PreK part-time away from home and learning alongside us while at home).
In July 2011, we began our 3rd year of homeschooling with 5 students: DS1, 7th grade; DS2, 5th grade; DS3, 4th grade; DS4, K; and DD, K.
In February 2012, we brought home DD2, age 23 months at the time.
In July 2012, we began our 4th year of homeschooling with 6 students: DS1, 8th grade; DS2, 6th grade; DS3, 5th grade; DS4, 1st grade; DD1, 1st grade; and DD2, tot school.
In August 2013, we began our 5th year of homeschooling with 6 students: DS1, 9th grade; DS2, 7th/8th grade; DS3, 6th grade; DS4, 2nd grade; DD1, 2nd grade; and DD2, age 3, preschool.
Our homeschool is quite eclectic with a predominant focus in Charlotte Mason philosophies and a good bit of unschooling mixed in as well.
