I'm not sure if I've actually come out and said that we're going to be homeschooling. I know I've mentioned it to a few people. But we came to a definite decision shortly after Boo was born. I know it seems to be a bit young to think about a child's education, but that's me, always thinking way far ahead! I like to plan...even though the plans change all the time!
We've decided to go with a curriculum called Ambleside Online. It's a literature based curriculum. It follows the "Charlotte Mason" method, which has as its major emphases character development, nature study, and quality classical literature.
I like that one of the goals of a Charlotte Mason education is to develop a child's love of learning. I firmly believe that helping a child to love learning will do much more good in the long run than teaching a child to pass tests. Just my opinion though!
I know that homeschooling is not for everybody. We definitely know that this is the right decision for us and we're excited about the decision that we've made!
Here's a link to the Ambleside curriculum.
