We are UNhurried schoolers. It’s a beautiful way to learn!
Yes, we’re homeschoolers.
Yes, we’re unschoolers.
Yes, we’re interest-led schoolers.
Yes, we’ve been public schoolers (many years.)
Yes, we’ve attended private schools (a couple years.)
Yes, we’re teaching our kids about survival, writing, reading, math, history, science, home economics, Bible, financial peace (with Dave Ramsey,) and much more.
But not all at the same time.
The best part about learning with my Homeschool Homies is that we are absolutely NOT in a hurry anymore.
We are learning. We are learning every day (even in the summer and on holidays.) And my kids LIKE it!
Today as I was teaching my 12 year old daughter how to use the sewing machine, I heard one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever heard in my whole life.
As we were not rushed… (because I do not believe true learning happens as quickly as many teachers are being told they must move…)
As we were not frustrated… (because several projects aren’t due for several classes where each one has a deadline…)
We are not worried about if the teachers would say she did the job “right” enough to pass a standardized test…
We are not focused on 10 different subjects every day. We focus on 2 or 3 subjects each day.
We are learning to sew. Right now my kids are learning to sew with a sewing machine.
And it’s great!
Some of the most beautiful words I could ever hear came straight from my daughter’s heart today.
“I really like doing this stuff with you, Mommy.”
Praise God for UNhurried learning (and moments) like this.
Praise God for beautiful UNhurried words.
Lord, please UNhurry each of us and show us Your amazing plan for our lives. Amen.
