The Unhurried Homeschooler....

In preparation for the GHC, I'm making my lists and checking them twice.  In the fall, I'll be 'teaching' 4K, 6th, and 7th grade.  This morning as I was nearing hyperventilation stage at the thought, I listened to Homeschool Snapshots Podcast 28, Unhurried Homeschooling with Pam Barnhill and Durenda Wilson.  I so appreciate perspective from veteran homeschooling moms like Durenda.  She has eight children ranging from age 11 to young adult homeschool graduates, a couple of which are married and carrying on the tradition with grandchildren.  After listening to the podcast, I felt better and would love to get my hands on a copy of her book, The Unhurried Homeschooler.

In poking around her blog, Simple Nourishing Home, I came across a video interview Durenda did with her third child, Jake, who, at that time, was a 19-year old college student.  In the intereview, Jake shares his homeschool experience and encourages homeschooling families.  I find it very reassuring when I hear homeschool graduates adamantly profess the power of homeschooling and their plans to continue with their children.  The Interview with Jake is a great testament to homeschooling.  There's no need for hyperventilation ;-)
