Karen, has been homeschooling for 32 years and has lived to tell about it. She and her husband Bob have 12 kids and have homeschooled them all, with the exception of her special needs child. After the first 10 years of homeschooling independently, the Alm family joined Heritage Christian School for support while she navigated High School with her 14 year old and schooling/corralling her other 7 kids at the time. She has learned and endured the various seasons of child-rearing, homeschooling, and home management and has experienced failure and, thankfully, some success. With 10 of her children now either in college or graduated from college and off the payroll, she has taken on the responsibility of managing the family's properties and exploring new hobbies such as hiking and painting. Her favorite thing to do in her spare time has and will always be meeting with other women and sharing life. She is honored to be able to share a few things with you today that have helped her.
In this session, we will explore some of the most helpful organizational habits that have proven to move a chaotic homeschooling experience into a do-able lifestyle. Goals, schedules, and delegation are a few of the discussion points. Bring your questions and your wisdom. The hope is that we will all walk away from this session with one thing to implement and the joy and enthusiasm that comes in realizing the honor bestowed on us to be a parent and to teach our children.
