(I think I avoid writing about homeschooling because I'm the only one doing it yet and I'm not sure exactly who my audience is. So I suppose my audience will be Madame Coin :) )
Tomorrow is the official first day of school and I have a little bit of insomnia (of course). I was thinking about what if we decided last minute to go back to the local public school. I know his teacher and I think he'd be okay in there. Maybe a bit stressed again. Oh my gosh, I forgot about the stress!!! He's such a sensitive kid and sometimes I just waqnt to feed him to the wolves hoping it will toughen him up, but I know it wont. And I also know that's why God sent him to me.
Anyway, so I was thinking about it and I felt sad and a little sick. No matter how much I want to have more free time to sew and do yard work, I know that this is something I need to do this year. I don't know if we'll go longer or not; one year at a time.
I'm very excited though. And it's helping ME. I'm more disciplined and more available to my kids. I've had to get more organized and stick to the routine and I can see it's helping me. I'm mostly happy with the K12 curriculum and know that I will do a better job teaching with someone to be accountable to. It's good to know that about myself. I like designing a syllabus and schedule, but the lesson planning was doing me in this summer.
I still have no idea what I'm going to do with the girls....
