Hello!

We are a new homeschooling family. We have four girls - 8, 6, 5, 2. We just pulled our first and second grader out of the public school system and are so relieved to have done so. As I wanted to give them some time to decompress from the whole school situation, today was our first "official" day of doing work and it went wonderfully. We aren't using a full cirrculum, but are just using different workbooks, as well as books from the library. The only problem I had was convincing myself that it was okay to be done with school work by 11:30am. They were free for the rest of the day to play and use their imaginations. It was wonderful. Throughout the day as I looked at the clock, I kept thinking that they normally still be gone from me. I truly feel so happy that we have made the decision to bring them home to learn.

Thanks for the support!

Maddykate

Welcome maddykate! I just began homeschooling my boys (ages 7 and 10) this past September. They have really learned to use their imaginations this year, and we have all gotten closer as a family.
