Welcome to our little place on the internet!
We are the Patersons: a homeschooling family that is a little silly and a lot of fun, but we are always keeping it real.
Paterson Academy is a blog about our personal journey homeschooling while also sharing ideas, advice, curriculum reviews, thoughts and opinions, and an overall sense of community.
In fact, to write a blog merely about homeschooling is nearly impossible since one truth that we have come to know is that every aspect of our life is a part of our homeschool. So, really, Paterson Academy is about life. The life of a family, and the individuals within that family; the community that we find ourselves in, and the community we create.
Now to get you started, I want to recommend reading the post “I Hate Homeschooling.” I promise, this post is less ominous than it sounds. In this post, you will read about why we started homeschooling and how our first year went.
Once you read about our first year, I want to encourage you to also read some of our top posts:
