11 One Thing Principle

One Thing! I’ve written about the One Thing Principle many times on the blog. Today, though, I wanted to share with you in more detail about how to get that fantasy homeschool you imagine into the real world of your routine family practice. Noah shares about our family and what we did that he remembers and I am hoping that my comments will ease some of the frustration and doubt that get in the way of enjoying your time at home with your kids.

And forgive the silly picture. My business photo shoot included these shots of me with the numbers 1, 2, and 3 for possible inclusion in marketing materials. They turned out really silly… but then, maybe silly is a little bit what’s missing for all of us in this serious business of raising, nurturing, and educating our kids.

Please feel free to post questions about your unique family situation below or to share some successes. We don’t have a forum any more and I know your input does help those who are learning this brave new way of living.

  7. […] Mark a day on the calendar for an “At Home Field Trip” to your “destination” (the tombs of Ancient Egypt, the cave paintings of Lascaux, etc.).  (I heard that phrase on the Brave Writer podcast and I think it’s awesome.  The idea is to set aside a day for a special activity that replaces regular homeschool lessons.) http://blog.bravewriter.com/2013/01/22/11-one-thing-principle/ […]
