Why ‘Chansen Academy’?

I decided to start Chansen Academy for several reasons and am very hopeful it will add value to the parenting and homeschooling journey, both for my family and yours.  I have a lot of ideas for the fun things I want to do with my kids, but already find it easy to let them sit and watch too much PBS or NetFlix so I can ‘get one more thing done.’  I am afraid these days will slip away without having the fun I envision.  I hope Chansen Academy will bring me some motivation to get organized and accountability to follow through with my plans.  I am also hopeful that Chansen Academy will become a supportive community for families, whether they homeschool or not.  A place to find ideas for fun activities; a group of parents who want to learn more about how to support their children in achieving their dreams; a welcoming spot to find calmness and renewal.  And in the interest of full disclosure, I hope this site will help me provide for my family, both the things they need and a few of the little extras that add some fun and opportunities to life.  I hope that Chansen Academy will become all of this and more.  Thank you for taking this adventure with me!
