Homeschooling & Home Business, Schipper Style!
Another short success story received on email.
We are the Berry’s and we started homeschooling our four sons in August of 09. Their ages are 10, 9 and twin 4 year olds. We also started a home based educational software business in October. My husband does most of the work for it, but I am contributing as content editor and marketing director.
He’s developed educational software for about 10 years and decided to give it a try on his own. He does contract work to keep paying the bills while developing some children’s games. The completed games are currently available for anyone to use online. Just go to the kids section on their site.
We love the freedom it has given Mike to be able to teach the boys woodworking, house repairs, model airplane building, and more since we’re home as a family more. Our boys are learning to play the piano (which we never had time to do while attending public school), to program robots with Lego minds storms, how to do chores (and with no sisters they do everything!), to help with yard work, baking, computer stuff, play on a baseball team, and so much more that we never had time for before. I wasn’t sure I could homeschool, and we certainly don’t have it all down perfect, but we are learning how to live & seek to do all things to the glory of God.
