Not Back To School Blog Hop - Meet the student

Okay, well,  the Keeper of the ning (and we all know who she is! ) has dragged, or at least prodded me, kicking and screaming into blogland.  I love the idea of a blog, I love reading the blogs of people I know, but I am also quite reticent about having my own.

Anyway, I'm not sure how many years we've been home schooling, I'm going to say that this is our second year.  DD (aka Blue belle), is officially doing year 1 this year, but it's not as simple as that ... of course!!

We aim to cultivate the natural love of learning by preparing an environment that provides width and depth for exploration, and offers exposure to opportunities and real-life experiences, while keeping  in mind the balance of character, knowledge and skill.
