Hi everyone,
We are hoping to hs next fall. We have 4 wonderful children, ages 10,8,5, and 3. We homeschooled #1 for k but ended up sending him to ps, where we were convinced we had failed him as we taught Waldorf style and he wasn't reading with everyone else. Now that he is in 4th, we realize we have not done well by sending him as despite nearly straight 100's, he is consistently labelled "too dreamy" by teacher after teacher. Same for #2 and #3. We have a holistic veterinary practice and have decided to hire an associate to free us up enough to be home to school them ourselves. Family is not supportive of our decision. We live on a sustenance farm and are nearly off the grid.
Much appreciate this forum and all the advice and support we see!
