Well, unfortunately, it isn't a choice between Catholic school or homeschool. His choice is public school. I would be okay with our parish Catholic school, since it is traditional, he is not okay with 'paying extra for something we are already paying for' . . . (sigh) Luckily, he is very logical (he's an engineer), so I might have a shot appealing to that, since homeschooling is VERY logically the better choice, especially out here in southern California (one of the worst states for public school education).

I have a very logical dh so I feel your pain. Its a great characteristic in many ways but I always have to be super prepared with data when making a decision.

Exactly! Luckily, there is plenty of data in favor of homeschooling, especially compared to public schools. I think the biggest hurdle is going to be getting him to let go of all of the stereotypes and misinformation about homeschooled children/families.

Speaking of homeschooling . . . for those mommas doing it . . .

What curriculums do you use/like?


Do any of you have used curriculum you want to sell?
I have been looking on the homeschooling forum, but I haven't seen much by way of Catholic. I specifically am interested in the Catholic Heritage and Our Lady of Victory religion.

Has anyone used the BOB Books for teaching reading?

We're mostly done the K core of Catholic Heritage. I like it. We're pretty relaxed and I found it much more adaptable than Seton looked. I bought most of their grade 1 core kit (though not all this time around since I have a better sense of what we'll actually use, and what we'll just unschool.

Re: Any Catholic mamas of many?

we use seton because everything is organized for you & it is academically rigorous. it is also fully accredited & has been around for a while. our other choice was mother of divine grace which is tempting.

we have used seton for 6 years now & love it.

BOB books are the only readers that my kids have learned on. they are so simple yet confidence-building & they really work (not pricey either).

GL with the homeschooling decision!
