40 years. Between the two of us, have a combined total of 40 years of homeschooling experience! And parenting for longer than that…
Isn’t that crazy?
Between us we have taught and graduated 4 children, who are either in or already finished college. One is in law enforcement, 2 own photography businesses and 1 a video-graphy business. 1 is married and 2 are about to be; 3 are in high school and 2 are in middle school. Yup, if you think of parenting (and homeschooling)…we’ve pretty much “been there, done that”!
