    I've actually looked to the secularhomeschool webpage for curriculum info for years but I've just become an actual member so that I can participate.

    My husband and I have always homeschooled our two boys, ages 12 and 6. We homeschool to cater to our children's individual and unique needs. I also really enjoy educating, particularly science, history and mathematics. I started doing enrichment science and mathematics education in college and now teach the occasional co-op class.

    I consider us secular eclectic homeschoolers. I have read and researched just about every education method I can get my hands on and pull from them all. My youngest has developmental and physical disabilities and right now I am using a lot of Montessori and Charlotte Mason approaches. My oldest enjoys science, design (primarily LEGO), history and usually math. He does not like the physical or creative act of writing. It wasn't until recently that he was willing to read chapter books I assigned yet surprised me by finishing the Hobbit before his 10th birthday because I said we could watch the trilogy if he read it. His education is presently leaning Classical and Charlotte Mason in nature.

    Welcome, BookMama! (I'm so surprised that no one had picked that name yet! Kudos.)

    I'm sure any bits of experience you can share will be helpful to new homeschoolers here. Also, if you have questions about homeschooling middle school and beyond, there are many here who have done that as well.
