I am pleased to announce that I have gained another student! My little Miss Sassy has decided to join her brother at home. It was my intent to pull all 4 of the older children out of the public system for the next school year, but she couldn’t handle being separated from her brother any longer. That combined with the teasing she gets from the other kids at school about being ‘different’ led me to the decision that pulling her now would work out just fine. 🙂
I am in the process of putting together a dedicated page/blog for ‘Adventures in Home Schooling’ so that others may see our ideas and grow from them as well as share their ideas with me. My goal is to be unbelievably successful in this venture so I can smile in the face of the doubters and show them that this IS a viable option when other paths are not working out. So stay tuned! 🙂
I would also like to mention that I have never been told I love you as much as I have in the past week by the children. It is interesting – we are a totally ‘hands-on’ family every day – so projects and activities are not unusual, but Bradley in particular will thank me and tell me “I love you mom” after we complete each section of our day. Now my question is why? Is it because I have found a way to reach him? Maybe because he knows I have went to the ends of the earth to make sure he is safe? Or maybe both. Whatever the reason, it makes what I am doing seem completely right.
