I just joined THL and think this may be the 3rd time I've introduced myself on here haha I was so excited that I ran off to join a group before saying hello to everyone in general.
Anyway, I'm talkative, super friendly, and homeschool 3 kids.
I have a 13yo, 9yo, and 7yo, all daughters. We are a mixed family (British/Filipino and American stepdad) living in the Philippines... I welcome conversations, questions, enjoy helping out or motivating where I can, so don't hesitate to say hi. :)
Hi Riva and welcome to the Homeschool Lounge. I am Debbie in Va. and am homeschooling 3 with a preschooler in the mix. We are in our 7th year of homeschooling.
Welcome Riva. I'm Debra. We live in Arizona. Our 3 boys are 15, 12 and 5. We've been homeschooling for almost 11 years.
HI I am Tina from Ohio. I have all boys ages 22, 16, 13, 11 and 10. I have been homeschooling for 11 years. Welcome!
Hi Riva! My oldest went to PS through 5th grade then we pulled him out when son number two was starting K. The other 4 have always been home schooled.
We haven't had any teenage troubles here. Everyone keeps telling me I'm heading for trouble but so far so good. My oldest was a dream teenager no problems at all and my second has grown into a nice young man.
My 13 year old likes to tease the 10 year old so I have to stay on top of that but for the most part they get along great.
They are each others best friends and I love that.
Oh I know. We are so much closer as a family than when my son went to PS. We didn't have time to do anything with the hours of homework every night. I shudder when I think about it.
haha Funny you should say that because I literally shudder at the thought of how it used to be when all my kids were going to regular school. Awful!
My 7yo is actually still attending a Christian private school... but being in the province, the quality is probably equivalent to a poorly equipped public school in the city. I CAN'T WAIT for her last day of school! Every day that we have to get up(at 6am, mind you!) to send her off to school before 7am, I count off how many days are left lol... 15 days as of today! I have SO much "fixing" to do, but look forward to it.
I tease my boys when the school bus goes by the house at 7:15am that they could be getting on the bus instead of eating breakfast and watching cartoons.
haha ya... nobody misses that at our house. Sometimes I feel that if people only knew, there would be more homeschoolers lol
