Homeschool Things

We are a homeschool family.  This is our 4th year of homeschooling.  It is perfect for our family in this time and season of life.  I love having my girls home with me.  Some days are hard and long…. Sometimes I think it would be easier to just send the older two to school, but then, when I really weigh it all out, I know this is what is best for all of us.  Plus, in my other life (pre-children) I was a teacher.  I have my Elementary Education degree and Teaching License. I like that I am getting to use them.

Our homeschool is called Triple Oaks Academy.

Triple Oaks Academy

We based our name after this sermon called “The Orchid and the Oak Tree”.  This sermon is near the top of my list for my favorite sermons.  It is based around Jeremiah 17:7-8.

“But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord,

whose confidence is in him.

They will be like a tree planted by the water

that sends out its roots by the stream.

It does not fear when heat comes;

its leaves are always green.

It has no worries in a year of drought

and never fails to bear fruit.”

I hope to raise three beautiful “oak trees”.

Currently Alyse is in 3rd Grade and Breeley is in Kindergarten.
