Summer is in full-swing and my wife is in de-clutter mode. Today we tackled homeschool supplies. I was mostly there to lift heavy things and to encourage Annette to actually follow through with throwing things away. For her this is a very difficult thing to do. As we sorted we found more and more old pieces of curriculum buried deep in the dark spaces of "the cabinet".
If you read the book, you will see that we are not a big "curriculum" people. The reason we found ourselves with so much of the dreadful stuff is that we actually spent years developing our philosophy of education which all revolves around creating a love of learning in our children. For the first several years of our homeschool journey we dutifully bought the obligatory curriculum We dutifully used it a little bit and we routinely said, "There has to be a better way," as we shelved it with three pages done. The next year we started over. New curriculum, new goals, same results. Shelf.
So today we sorted it all out. Since the book isn't out yet and you haven't read it, you may still be in the market for curriculum. You can probably find some on Ebay over the next few days, and, despite our preference for other methods, we will still gladly take your money for buying ours.
