What makes up the education of our children?
Math, language arts, history, geography and science isn’t it?
Well the fact that we homeschool our children means we can do things different doesn’t it? Do we have to just do math and science and language arts??? Of course not. We can mix things up a bit with our students and that’s a very good thing.
So just what are the extras?
Poetry, horsemanship, archery, art, phys ed, archaeology, field trips, political science and so much more.
There are so many things we can add to our children’s education. Things that some might say are simply extras, but I think are a vital part of educating our children.

And suddenly develop a father son bonding time that you didn’t expect.
Doing regular service with an agency in need of help builds community bonding and teaches
children so much about others. Seeing others through their eyes is helpful as well.
You can make the Middle Ages come alive.
And listen to your child tell you how things would really be back in the day.
