This is the homeschooling blog of a Minnesota family of 4: mom, dad, and two girls. We’re (almost all) Catholics, we’re Democrats, we love reading, ice skating, Prairie Home Companion, and the State Fair. We blog about home education from many perspectives: re-educating (or de-schooling) mom and dad, homeschooling a profoundly gifted child, homeschooling a highly sensitive and spirited child, homeschooling in the liberal and fine arts, and homeschooling while both parents work.
We blog because we like to keep in touch with other homeschooling families, families who share some of our unique challenges and families who do things in a totally different way. We blog for the same reason we homeschool—we like to learn!
One thing we don’t blog for — to make people who make other choices feel either inferior or superior. I can’t preface every blog post with a disclaimer: “How I choose to live my life is not a comment on how you choose to live yours” or “I don’t mean ‘better’ when I say ‘gifted'” or “This blog has lots of snapshots of things I wanted to write about, but it doesn’t represent the totality of my life or my thoughts.” I’m saying it now, once and for all.
Comments are not moderated, but the headmistress is a gentle soul who dislikes the vortex of pointless negativity generated by so many comment threads. Comments that seem to point in this direction will be ruthlessly deleted.
Thanks for stopping by!
