Homeschool Mom Tag Video

Friday, May 5th, 2017


In this video I answer 10 common homeschooling questions. I was tagged in a Homeschool Mom Tag video on YouTube by Shelly Sangrey from There’s No Place Like Home.

Here is how I answered these questions:

  1. Were you homeschooled? No. I grew up as a missionary kid in Guatemala, so you would think that my parents knew about homeschooling, but they didn’t. I went to a bilingual national school, to a boarding school for missionary kids for two years, and then to an English-speaking Christian school.
  2. Did you always know you were going to homeschool your children? Yes.
  3. What are your three favorite books in your homeschool library? Educating the WholeHearted Child by Sally Clarkson, A Charlotte Mason Companion by Karen Andreola, and The Well-Trained Mind by Susan Wise Bauer.
  4. Are you the only teacher, or do you outsource? I am their only teacher. My husband has occasionally done robotics or other specialized activities with the kids, and we go on a lot of field trips that are led by specialists in each field of knowledge.
  5. What is your favorite place to purchase homeschool curriculum? Homeschool convention vendor halls (because I can look at the curriculum before buying it) and used curriculum sales (especially for hands-on models and educational toys.)
  6. Do you set a budget for your homeschool? No.
  7. What are two must-have homeschool supplies? My computer printer and black card stock paper for notebooking, since the kids’ work pops so nicely against the black background.
  8. What is your favorite and least favorite subject to teach? I’ve always loved teaching literature and Bible, and I now love teaching history and science. My least favorite subject to teach is math.
  9. Are you involved in co-ops or homeschool groups? No, because I end up being in charge of everything, since I’m a strong leader. Co-ops are supposed to lighten your load, not give you a bigger load.
  10. What is your homeschool approach? Unit studies, of course!

I hope you enjoyed watching my version of the Homeschool Mom Tag video. Now I’m choosing to tag the following homeschool moms, to see if they will answer these fun homeschool questions:
