Hello from the southwestern corner of Indiana! We are Will and Courtney Nalin, married since 2004 and honored to be homeschooling our 2 children. Courtney works full time as a licensed paramedic while Will works full time in IT. We have been homeschooling since the beginning and believe that anyone can do it if given the right resources, even in the imperfections. Our family enjoys bein involved in our co-op, local activities, spending time with extended family, and taking vacations. In our spare time, we enjoy board games, hanging out with our pets, and seeing what new plants we can grow in our backyard!
Our Favorite thing about homeschooling is…
Being able to explore different interests and passions while having the freedom to change how we are learning based on each child’s style. While our initial reason for homeschooling is slightly different than our reason for continuing, being able to encourage, lead, and watch our children grow in all aspects of their lives is the highest honor. This is not just a way to educate, but a personal growth and character building experience for the whole family.
Our Region is blessed with…
A large homeschool community where we can continuously support one another. We have multiple groups, co-ops, classes, and activities to be involved in, while new ones are being consistently created based on the needs of our area. There are museums, a zoo, historical sites, libraries, state parks, and entertainment venues. There’s a national park, a living history farm, and Lincoln Amphitheatre, with musical performances throughout the summer and fall. If your family loves caving camping, or going on other adventures within a day’s driving distance, our area has it! We do not lack opportunities to explore or grow no matter the homeschool style!
