We have four daughters (born 2002, 2004, 2006, 2009) who have all been home educated from the start. We live on an acreage south-east of Edmonton where Richard works in agriculture from a home office and Sandra is a full-time home-educating Mom.
Home schooling is absolutely worth the effort. The main benefit is that we have so much more TIME together as a family. We wouldn’t trade this privilege for anything in the world.
WISDOM Home Schooling has been our home school administration of choice from the beginning. WISDOM understands that home education is about families. WISDOM staff are an excellent learning support to our family. We learned early-on that no one is an expert on home education or our children. Most of what we know about home schooling we learn from other families and educators. The rest we learn from working with our girls. Every family is different. Every child is unique and has their own learning style. The flexibility we have allows us to make learning relevant, meaningful and fun. We love that our girls have wonderful friendships with each other. Each of them is developing their own personal faith and vision for God’s plan in their life.
We are confident our children will be equipped to pursue any path they choose.
Our journey is not without mistakes or difficulties. It is a very real and rich experience of family life. We feel very blessed and are always happy to share with others what we have learned.
