You would think, with all my health stuff, I would welcome the start of school and two girls heading out my door each day. Rather, I have been dreading the beginning of school since it ended in June.
Imstead, I’ve been dreaming of homeschooling. For years really. But those other years I was working outside of the home. So the dream was shelved. This summer the dream got dusted off. And it was shiny.
I started researching. And talking to other homeschoolers. I found a curriculum, Easy Peasy All-in-One homeschool.
Hubby and I talked. I gathered info from friends. Monday night, at 10 pm, we decided to make it a reality.
Our minds said to wait a few days, let me get more familiar and prepared, but Caitlyn saw me clicking through, she knew her friends were in school, and was ready to dive in! Sue felt the same way, so we were off!
I had to have a stomach scope yesterday, so we had our first snow day. It was celebrated around here!
I’m having some trouble with the girls complaining they are bored, but I think that is normal of this age? I know Caitlyn complained a lot about it last year in school. Dear teachers out there, is it normal for 6 and 7 year olds to complain they are bored even when the lessons are short? We are done by lunch or shortly after with the prescribed school work. Next week we will start getting involved in some other groups and we’ll add in fun projects but for now, we are getting our feet wet.
I am loving working with the girls, though I do worry I am making mistakes and I will let them down, but we will all learn if I just keep trying, right?
Survive til you Thrive!
