About The Humble Homeschooler

I never thought that the path of life would lead me into homeschooling, but when God called, we answered. We are blessed to have a son who has Asperger's and ADHD. This is a huge part of the reason we decided that homeschooling was the right option when we were called to do it. It can certainly be a challenge, but we take it one day at a time and learn as much as we can from our special boy. We wouldn't trade it for all the "normal" in the world !
