Welcome to The Three R's Academy

Hello there, I'm a wife to one, mother to two, daughter to several, friend to many.

I'd really love to start homeschooling my boys. We've been talking about it for years and it always seemed so hard and scary.

Finally it doesn't seem so frightening.

We're planning on starting shortly after summer starts up. I'm sure that my sanity will be lost on many days of teaching my boys their life's lessons.

Honestly, homeschooling seemed liked this secret society to me that was costly and included lots of workbooks.

When ever I had asked around to other homeschooling moms (or dads) how they did it, or what they used, they all said what ever you want.

I've been scouring the net for as much free information on homeschooling and curriculum as I could find. I've actually found a lot of free stuff.

With all good hopes I can help others to see that homeschooling is not so secret.

As for what curriculum I'll use, I'm not sure what it's called, but several unit studies, life's lessons, many field trips, lap books and those darned 3 R's.

I've been searching and reading. More so lately since we have been having more trouble in public school. I've just moved and I am getting our new home in order as well as working out a homeschool plan. It's been busy. I did most of the moving due to my DH having to work often.
