    Smile Hello from the Rockies

    Hello!

    My son will be three in November, and we are thinking seriously about homeschooling him when he gets a bit older. I have been lurking in this site for a few months and thought I should finally create an account.

    We live in a rural home in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. We love our quiet life of reading, playing, and exploring together as a family. My husband works from home so we all spend quite a bit of time at home together, but we also love to go into the Big City (Denver) for museums and shows.

    I was raised in an alternative magnet school that focused in self directed learning. Later, as a grad student in the arts, I discovered authors like Freire and bell hooks and Foucault. Reading these authors clarified my thinking on education and strengthened my commitment to exploring homeschooling for my son.

    Thank you all for being such fabulous resources. I have already learned so much just from reading these forums.

    It is. There are trade offs in convenience, but we love it!

    Welcome! I'm another mountain mama from Colorado - kinda shocked that user name wasn't taken, honestly

    We live about 90 min from Denver, west of Colo Spgs, but have memberships to the Children's Museum and the Museum of Nature and Science in Denver - let me know if you want to meet up sometime! I'm really excited to explore the new Adventure Forest in Joy Park once all the kids go back to school I haven't talked Friere or bell hooks in a long time - both my copies of Teaching to Trangress and Pedagogy of the Oppressed got lent out and never found their way back. Sorry, Foucault gives me a tic.

    I'm new to homeschooling but everyone here is super helpful.

    Hi everyone! Thanks for the warm welcome!

    We love the DMNS and the children’s museum too! It looks like my DS is too young for the adventure forest but that will be awesome.

    Lol about Foucault.
