hen I started my homeschooling journey eight years ago it was only a ‘trial’ basis. I was sure that I wouldn’t have the patience to teach my children at home and was very concerned how family and friends would perceive us.
A lot has changed since then! While patience is hard to come by some days, I wouldn’t change our journey!
I absolutely LOVE seeing my children’s ‘light bulbs’ come on and their own love and desire to learn. They have grown so much in their faith, confidence, academic learning level and compassion with others! This makes all the work worth every minute.
I have been a ‘cradle Catholic’ (baptized at birth) all my life, but over the years, have a new found love and appreciation of our glorious Catholic faith. I love having the opportunity to teach our faith to my children without the interference of government policies/curriculum.
When I came to CHE three years ago it was also on a trial basis. I thought my children would love playing with other
children their own age. That part I was right on! But, what surprised me was how much I loved being with the other mom’s sharing our faith. CHE is a special gem in our area! There is no other co-op like ours!
I speak for Heather (co-director) and myself when I say we are looking forward to sharing our special gem with new
families. We also look forward to sharing our weekly Catholic Mom Blogs with you too!
