Homeschooling Through the Alphabet: V is for Variety

Variety is defined as the quality or state of being different or diverse; the absence of uniformity, sameness or monotony... and I really could not think of a better way to describe our homeschooling lives!

We are certainly different than most families who children attend public or private schools and we are rather proud of that fact.  We enjoy being different and walking our own path.  

I have often thought that if variety is the spice of life than my kids lead a very spicy life indeed!  We rarely have any two days that are the same.  We are always trying out new curriculum books (and WOW! is there an unbelievable amount of materials to choose from). new arts and crafts projects, and new field trip destinations.

We try new classes, try out new skills, and learn new things all the time.

We live a rich an full live, relying on a variety of new experiences to keep learning.  

Oftentimes we have such an array of choices around us that it can be hard to choose what we want to do and focus on just a few areas of learning!

  1. variety is indeed such a good thing eh? Glad you are part of the mosaic that joined in with "V" this week.

    1. Thank you! I have to admit v, x, y, and z are all quite challenging!

  2. I love the freedom of homeschooling as well. Allowing your children to choose from the variety of options and guide their way into adulthood is such a wonderful gift. Thank you for the reminder!
