I was a mother of 7 ages 11,9,7,5,4,2, and a newborn when I was paralyzed from the waist down during the birth of our youngest child in November 2004. At that time, I had been homeschooling for over 5 years with I was very active both locally and in the greater South West speaking, writing and leading local homeschool groups. When I arrived home in a wheelchair facing months of surgery and rehabilitation, everyone told me to "just put the kids in school, it will be SO much easier on you." Even my own husband questioned our ability to school effectively anymore.   I had lost my legs, I was not going to lose my dream of schooling my children at home, what followed that day was 14 years of trial and error, out of the box thinking and a lot of hope and faith that I could do it. We not only found a way to school, but we also found a way to thrive and have fun during the worst years and months of our families lives. We even found a way to make sense out of what happened to our lives.  It is possible to homeschool through "Life" when it happens. Come find out what worked and what didn't work that well. Learn about things like Lego Day, movie day, story writing day, meal planning, budgets, hospital schooling and much more!
