I like this :) Taken from

Q. What about socialization? A. The word socialization, contrary to the opinion of some, does not mean spending the weekdays competing with 25 human beings one's own age. In a natural community children spend their daily lives with old people, babies, and everyone in between. They do not compete, but learn to search out the needs of others and to help them live and learn. This mixed age group and habit of teaching and helping others, and being helped and taught by people younger or older than oneself, is a part of Montessori classes at all ages and is easy to fit into the Montessori homeschooling plan.

I like that! I will have to check out that link. I've been considering more Montessori type things in our schooling. :-)

I love the look of your blog. It has a great background.

We homeschool, too. The socialization part of homeschooling is wonderful. My kids get to socialize with kids (and adults) of all different ages at homeschooling events and church. They are learning how to talk to people of all ages.
