I am a homeschool mom.
I love homeschooling my children. I love watching them grow and learn. I treasure being afforded the time to soak up these precious moments.
But homeschooling is not my first priority.
To be completely honest with you, homeschooling doesn’t even make my list of top three priorities.
Because of this mindset, there any many “school” days where we toss the books aside and focus on the important issues.
I’m not saying that math and reading aren’t important.
What I’m saying is that I can teach my child to be the greatest mathematician on the planet, but if I’ve neglected to seek out God’s calling for her and focused more on books and work than heart and soul, then I have labored in vain.
There are many days when books are touched but hearts are changed.
That, my friends, is what homeschooling is all about.
Our ultimate calling as a parent isn’t to provide our children with an ivy-league education, our ultimate calling as a parent is to raise a child who knows and loves God and who loves her neighbor as herself.
Come take a peek into our homeschool.

There you have a glimpse into what Real Life Homeschooling looks like for us.
