It’s true — we quit homeschooling. It’s back to school next week and both my kids will be going to school. In this post, I’ll share why we decided to quit homeschooling.
We started homeschooling a year ago. At first, we tried to do homeschooling like regular school. Using a curriculum, workbooks, math exercises, spelling practice, etc. My 9-year-old, Kate hated it. I was scared to try unschooling at first, but the more Kate rejected learning, the more I realized I couldn’t push a rope. So we embraced unschooling and haven’t looked back.
Looking for a California homeschool conference? The week before last, we went to the Homeschool Association of California 2016 Conference. We go every summer and we love it. I think this was our fourth time to attend. If you’re a homeschooling family in California, you should consider attending next year.
It’s been a busy summer with lots of travel and activity. We’ve went to Palm Springs for Father’s Day, to wine country for my birthday (July 4th), drove up to San Francisco for a business/pleasure trip, and we went home shopping in Las Vegas last weekend.
The first weekend of August, my daughter Kate (4 years old) and I drove up to Sacramento for the Homeschool Association of California’s annual conference.
