I'm Kat from the Austin area who has homeschooled 4 children since the beginning. Though I grew up in Texas, I lived 25 years in Britain and only moved back home about three years ago, in time to shift gears for the high school years in the American system. The eldest is in her freshman year at Mt Holyoke, and then two boys and a girl are still at home, aged 17 down to 12. They're all competitive swimmers and one also shows dogs. We have always followed the Charlotte Mason method, though as we hit the teen years, we do more outsourcing to a co-op, some dual enrollment, and online tutors who work at the same Charlotte Mason online tutoring where I teach all the high school English courses. I also have Toy Manchester terriers which are my big conservation passion.
