Homeschooler-to-Homeschooler

Meet Jenny

Hello Bosque County, TX Homeschoolers and those in the Bosque area considering homeschooling! I’m Jenny. In the spirit of making our BACH (Bosque Area Christian Homeschoolers) site more accessible and up-to-date we will be posting monthly informational installments from various families in the BACH group.

I would just like to share a little bit about our homeschooling experience.  Like a lot of homeschooling parents, I rise around 6am to have my quiet time with the Lord, with a cup of my favorite hot tea steaming serenely beside me as I commit another homeschooling day to Him in thanks.  I do a bit of yoga and then get our hot breakfast ready as I gently wake my sweet student. She rises with a smile and burst of excited energy to meet the day… (here is where you hear the record scratch this tale to a stop).

That is my daydream.  I have a great desire to meet the day this way and on some rare occasions parts of this may happen.  But, our true life tale is some late mornings, some fast breakfasts, not enough time in His word, and honestly, rare times of exercise.

I homeschool one student and admire and marvel at those parents who lovingly and capably manage a range of ages in their home school.  There is a steady stream of His grace as we approach our literature-based learning with our Sonlight curriculum.

After writing my curriculum review, I was reminded of one of the many reasons I appreciate our Bosque homeschool group: the wealth of resources. Almost every homeschooling family uses different curriculum, teaching/learning styles and techniques. Some of our parents have even been homeschooling for twenty years+!  We certainly hope as a Homeschooling group to keep growing and encouraging each other in our commitment to the Lord and our children.
