Adventures in Home Schooling… coming soon!

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.

    There are lots of resources regarding homeschooling. I babysit a family of four homeschooled kids often. The key is to also get them involved in activities outside of the home with other kids. Lots of cities have networks of homeschooling families established where there are days when they all get together to do activities as a group. Search online for a homeschooling group in your area. You may have to go off base, but it will give your kids a chance to make friends. Theater programs and sports are great as well. And if you begin to feel too overwhelmed, an option for you is the K-12 online schools. They act as a public school system but everything is online. Teaching is done at the child’s pace so they can spend more time on something if necessary, which would be valuable with Bradley and Haley. I hope this helps.
