Since we’ve been home, we’ve been doing ALOT of this…
Things will be a changin’ around here…I will be taking on a new challenge of educating my kids at home. Yes, maybe I’ve lost my mind. No, it’s not because of the teacher or the school. I love, love, loved my daughter’s teacher. She always went the extra 10 miles, way above & beyond the call of duty. Really, she is the ONE you want teaching & influencing your kids. There are many reasons we’ve decided to do this, but mainly it fits our family’s schedule better. Although, I always wonder if it’s the best decision…I guess everyone does at some point. I’ve been getting lots of inspiration from other HS blogs like Trivium Academy, Smooth Stones Academy, Life with my 3 Boybarians, Mt. Hope Chronicles, My friend…and many more.
I’m getting excited & trying to get curriculum stuff together (since we start in a few weeks). Am I the only last minute mom to get stuff together? My kids are excited about the possibilities of learning & doing things that they wouldn’t normally get to do if in school…like guitar, horseback riding & hopefully visiting Gpa in Cali. I’ve also been turning half my studio into a school room/wall. We will probably never do school there, but it is a place for books, maps & to hang stuff. Every time I go in the studio…they come in because they want to sew too! My kids can’t even sit while eating dinner…they stand! I’ll post a picture of my studio/school room soon. Any advice on this new adventure would be surely appreciated! I give you full permission.
I’m looking forward to learning more about my kids, what makes them tick & where their creativeness takes them & me. I’m thinking I will probably start a homeschool blog…more for me to kinda keep track of our journey.
