Meet the Habermehl Family
At HSLDA, we love to hear stories from our members about what “a day in the life” looks like for them. This week, we are sharing the Habermehls story! Maybe you’ll see your family’s experience in theirs. Or maybe you’ll be intrigued by the differences between your families. Either way, it is encouraging to read these homeschool stories as we celebrate the privilege and freedom we have to teach our children at home. It is a wonderful life!

Record Keeping: Documenting the good work your family has done
Having the freedom to homeschool is not something we should take for granted. And ensuring that we are keeping record of the good work we are doing at home is one way to maintain an intentional measure of the validity of homeschooling. We know anecdotally that homeschooling works. And we know that our children are learning and experiencing so much. However, to a society that is conditioned to measure learning in the way that the public schools always have, homeschooling can look too informal or too haphazard unless we can document the progress our students have made.
