- Our homeschool started in August of 2007. Sweetheart was in 2nd grade (after repeating 1st in school) and Little Bit was 3 1/2 years old.
|Little Bit's 4th birthday that fall.|
- We schooled at the dining room table using Abeka curriculum.
- We have schooled in the dining room, the front room, Little Bit's current bedroom, and now the living room/Sweetheart's room.
- We have not, however, homeschooled in the bathroom yet.
- The best investment I ever made to our homeschool was this.
- One thing I am very thankful for is my husband agreeing for us to use Sonlight Curriculum. It's expensive, but it's so good. I am thankful to have it.
- I have boxes of our old work. I don't really know what to do with it, but I don't want to get rid of it. One day I'll run out of room and have to deal with it.
- We have 1 1/2 more years until Sweetheart is in high school. (!!!!!)
- One day I'll have a senior in high school, an 8th grader, and a Kindergartner all at the same time.
- It took me a while to shake off the school teacher mentality. Then I got a little too relaxed, and now I'm back to being kind of stressed. It's a hard balance.
- My children will NOT be graduating early, or half-way through college in high school, or any of the other stereotypes of homeschoolers. My children are quite normal--bordering on struggling instead of bordering on genius. And I'm OK with that.
- I have rarely regretted my curriculum choices. I have changed my mind, but really I am pretty glad we used everything we used. (With one exception coming to mind--that one ended up in the trash can.)
- I secretly long for a house with a huge homeschool room/playroom. One day. I will be content until then.
- I miss doing art projects, cooking projects, and other fun stuff. It's all we can do to get through school with a baby around. But the kids don't seem any worse for wear.
