Life of a homeschooler
Chapter 2

            In our family routine in the morning, we do many things. First, we have a bit of breakfast. Who wouldn't, right? Then we do a little program called Xtramath. On Xtramath, we do timed exercises in addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. The program helps with timing and proficiency. Next, we gather round the living room and watch a show called, CNN Student News. The television show is a ten minute broadcast of commercial-free current events. On the show, the anchor, Carl Azuz, randomly selects a public or home school name out of the roll call transcript page on 

Then, in the last few minutes of the broadcast, Carl Azuz cracks about as many puns as possible that relates to the previous news feed. Lastly, all of us work on a free home school website called

On this site, we select our current grad level and work our way through until we pass into the next grade.Currently, I am working on the English 8 portion of the website because of my poor grammar skills. When we are done, we are free to entertain ourselves. I entertain myself by playing my banjo and harmonica, then I would practice my writing and write this blog here. I look forward to writing more. The next chapter is about why sundays are fundays. God Bless!

Life of A Homeschooler 
Part 1

                 I am a child of a single parent. Some believed it almost impossible for a single mom to handle at least 9 children by themselves. Boy are they wrong. My mother had never failed to handle many children in her entire lifetime. The reason? A relationship with God and with our brother, Christ Jesus. Christians find unique ways to cope with life struggles such as rage,anger, codependency, fear of man, greed, envy, and hate. As a home-schooler, I get to learn what I want to learn by Unschooling, the act of teaching yourself what you want to learn, and at your own pace. Why do we home-schoolers chose home school over public school? One reason is that we have all the time in the world. In public schools, however, students are fearful of what others would think about them if they love certain subjects that others do not, hence my mention of fear of man. People generally try to do things pleasing to others around themselves. I, myself, was like this. Before I became a Christian, I tried my best to fit in with the crowd. I failed because I was different then everyone around me. 

As a Christian, I stood out before others at my school, but also, I was rejected by others. I forgive them, however, because Christ had forgiven me.

As a home-schooler, I get many benefits. I am able to go to college early, get jobs, and go to many fun and exciting places such as Six Flags.

I moved to this home shortly before my eighteenth birthday. If it had not been done so, I would have been living with my father in San Antonio, Texas and would be working as a construction worker under the sun everyday. Luckily, that had not happened and I will be able to be successful in life. I had in fact, been the first to go to college in my biological bloodline! A great success.

On my next chapter I will lead you through my life as a day to day experience. I hope you are well and I wish to see many comments on what you think of this blog, God Bless!!,
