I was inspired to write a vision statement for our homeschool by Maureen at Trinity Prep School and also by a new local group meeting I am attending designed to offer homeschooling mothers an opportunity to encourage one another in this endeavor. Being the consummate overachiever that I am, I couldn’t just write up a vision statement, but instead turned it into a scrapbook page. I’ve decided to print it as a 10×13 and hang it on the wall in our schoolroom. I think I will need to look at it several times a day to remind myself why I do what I do and what I hope to achieve from it. Vision statements are generally vague, and this one is no different. Exactly how I go about achieving this vision is somewhat up in the air. I have recently been trying to convert our homeschool to one that embraces the educational principles found in A Thomas Jefferson Education by Oliver DeMille. I need to rethink a lot of things that I’ve begun this year, especially with my 7th grader, F1. But, that is a topic for another blog entry.
