Now I am going to address the blog name. First off, I am completely uncreative. I am the type of person who is told to write a short poem or story and at the end will have nothing for you. So coming up with a blog name almost equated torture for me. By the name one may think I am a rocker mom who enjoys concerts and motorcycles. This is definitely not the case. It came to be during lessons today while I was trying not to bang my head off the table. I noticed that this is a common occurrence in our household so my head banging journey came to be during an excruciatingly long math lesson.
This is my first year homeschooling. It was something I had thought about but never really thought was possible. As the time for my dd5 came up for her to begin her K year, I began to research. That led me to The Well Trained Mind book and forum and then to The Latin Centered Curriculum. From these sources my decision was made although my husband was a little slower to get on board. I finally feel powerful and in control (well sort of) of my daughters education. I want to be able to provide her with a rigorous classic education full of so much more than she would get at the school down the street. I felt empowered as I wrote that. Maybe this blog thing is going to workout after all.
