You can Homeschool and a Giveaway

Can I homeschool?  This was the question I had been asking myself eversince I was pregnant.  After attending the homeschooling seminar conducted by The Learning Basket held sometime early this year where I heard testimonials of homeschooling parents and after talking to their smart children, I finally decided to homeschool Baby C.   

Baby C showing her tongue when she saw this flashcard for the first time.

For now, we are decided to homeschool her until she is 5 years old.  I will be taking it one step at a time.  From there, I'll see if I can go on.  My husband and I are Filipino-Chinese.  We want Baby C to grow up well versed in Mandarin.  Well, I am not and this is my frustration.  So when Baby C is already 5 years old, we will decide if we can continue with our homeschooling or enroll her in a Chinese School.

I started buying books and other materials in preparation to homeschooling when Baby C was just 2 months old.  Time flies so fast, she is about to turn one this week.  She is getting more curious by the day and I can't wait to start our "formal" homeschooling.

Hoarding books!

They have partnered to offer this inspirational event jam-packed with information about homeschooling that will help parents who are considering educating their children at home.
