New to homeschooling? This is for you…

For those of you who are at the beginning of your homeschooling journey, and may need a little support right about now…

“Let me sum up what I have been saying about learning. I believe that we learn best when we, not others, are decidingwhat we are going to try to learn, and when, and how, and for what reasons or purposes; when we, not others, are in the end choosing the people, materials, and experiences from which and with which we will be learning; when we, not others, are judging how easily or quickly or well we are learning, and when we have learned enough; and above all when we feel the wholeness and openness of the world around us, and our own freedom and power and competence in it.”   — John Holt

Now carry on!
