Hey Y’all, we were asked by The Texas Boys to join their collaboration on why we homeschool and why homeschooling is good / right for our family.
Check out the full homeschooling playlist here to see why The Texas Boys and other homesteaders homeschool their kids.
There are so many reasons we chose to homeschool our kids but we’ve narrowed it down to the 15 reasons below. Our reason for homeschooling our kids is pretty universal. However, most of our five methods only apply for young children.
We hope you enjoy the video and would love to hear what you think.
10 Reasons We Homeschool:

5 Ways We Homeschool Our Kids:
Being with our kids every day, we are able to teach our kids organically through everyday life situations.
If you saw our last video (Poor Little Dude), you know that our middle child (we call him Dude) was hospitalized due to pneumonia which aggravated his asthma. The bad news is that we do this once or twice every year. The good news is that we are now home and he is doing much better and breathing well.
Those of you with asthmatic children totally know the terror of knowing your child can’t breathe. We love natural, homemade, and alternative health practices but I’m so glad for modern medicine when it comes to keeping his lungs open during an asthma attack.

After polishing off the last of the Thanksgiving leftovers, I want to tell you about our Thanksgiving. We had initially planned to go up north to visit Jenn’s side of the family.

We not only have 1 child with life-threatening allergies, but two.

We have also discovered that Little Dude who is 1 is also deathly […]
