GREENHOUSE: Nurturing Home Education in North Carolina and Beyond
Sep 30, 2015

I recently went to a homeschool coffee social with new and seasoned homeschool moms. It was rewarding to go as an encourager. I hadn't realized that somehow over the last fifteen years, I had gone from a novice homeschool mom to being seasoned. (Although weathered or battle-scarred might be a better description.) I am now the mom I looked at fifteen years ago and thought, "Wow, she sure has it all figured out now that she has all those years of homeschooling under her belt." If she only knew.

If you grew up watching The Beverly Hillbillies, you may remember musicians Earl Scruggs and Lester Flatt. Occasionally, they sauntered through the Clampetts’ mansion door pickin’ and grinnin’. If you missed their appearances, you didn’t miss out on their music. Scruggs and Flat also performed the theme song for the show.

Smoke drifts from a campfire, mingling with the smells emanating from a black kettle suspended above it. A group of children of diverse ages draws near to what appears to be a vision from the past—someone dressed as a Civil War soldier or maybe an eighteenth century longhunter. "Are you going to eat that?" one young scholar inquires. "Did you really sleep out here last night?" "Is that gun real?" The questions often come as quickly as they can be answered, and one answer can generate another host of questions.
