My Homeschool: Freedom Academy

Freedom Academy

By: Dani

This is my first year of homeschool. I'm 10-years old. I get to decide when I want to graduate from high school and start college!

Right now I'm on a fast track. My plan is to graduate in five years. Maybe six years. Then I'm going to college to be a veterinarian. I already told you about my big dream of living on a ranch. I'm going to have my own horse, too.

Grandma found Ron Paul's curriculum and so that's how this blog got started. He believes that writing is the most important skill to have in life. Writing online is how we communicate every day, so every student has a blog. 

Ron Paul teaches us to study hard, to write well, and to begin earning money right away by doing something you really love.

Grandma helps me with spelling and grammar, because it's important that you can read what I'm writing!

Well, I love horses! And I am learning as much as I can about horses. Every chance I get, I go riding. So you can expect me to write a lot about horses. I also love bunnies, rats, and all kinds of animals. That's why I want to be a vet.

I even like to do math. I do three to four lessons of math every day. And it is great. In spelling today I did six pages by myself without Grandma. It was a surprise.

I also like the McGuffey's Readers. It is a reading thing.

I also like to play the piano and the violin. Those are cool instruments. I hope to get a violin of my own as soon as I can.

I do The Orange Book for Language arts. And we do all sorts of things diffrent things on some days, like history, science, and art.



We have fun with other homeschool families. We hang out, go on field trips, and have some classes together. The kids are really nice. They tease but they do it to make you laugh and it doesn't hurt you. They make me feel good about myself.

We acts in plays together, jump on trampolines, and watch movies together, too. Sometimes we go hiking out in nature.

My grandpa is a scientist. We go on hikes in the woods and he teaches me about everything we see in nature and how the world works.

Grandma is a writer. We are always reading books, doing art, sewing, baking, and crafts. 

My mom is a paralegal and she's really smart. She keeps me thinking positively. We have had so many adventures together! And I can't wait for our next one.

It's been a hard year and a good year for me. The things that were hard are turning into the best things. I might tell you more about that next time.

Grandma says that's what happens when you think positive thoughts and believe in yourself.

I hope you believe in your dreams and have people to help you! That's what homeschool is all about.



Have you been encouraged here today?

    Well, Dani, as you know I'm really happy we are homeschooling together! And I hope I can keep up with you!

    Three to four lessons of math? Hmmm… yes, there have been days when you do that much, but not EVERY DAY! 

    I am proud of you for maintaining an A average in Math. And your spelling is getting a lot better. There's a lot more I could say here, but just know that it's not about how much you do or how well you do it so much as how much fun you have in doing it. Because if you have fun, you'll do your best, and that is most important of all.

    I'm here for you… and I know that if you continue working as hard as you are now, that you'll not only graduate 2-3 years ahead of regular school, but you'll see your dreams come true.

    Dreams are hard work, because they require FAITH – and faith is not really faith until we take action steps toward those dreams. It's worth it, though!

    You are an inspiring girl, you know… and I'm so proud of you!

      I learned how to build a bunkbed this weekend. Grandpa helped me use power tools. I learned how to make the wood level. I helped him measure, cut, and screw.

       This was our shop class.
