It has been on my heart to look into home schooling for years [and I have].
The timing never seemed right, and tho we felt the Lord was leading that way, we consistently felt like the answer was "not YET."
Two weeks ago I brought #3 home to do Independent Study here with me, at home.
I have had many fears about home school:
Will I actually do the work with them?
Will I like having them here all day, in the winter, or long for the bus to show up?
Will I be grumpy and make learning a "chore"?
Will they become unsocial and "off"?
So, as we made the decision to bring #3 home, it was time to face these fears.
And after to 2 weeks I want to shout from the roof tops - I LOVE IT!
I love doing the work with him! I feel like for the first time I know what he is learning and how he is doing! I can already see a softening of the heart in the social area. Public school can be tough and make kids hard if they have to battle something/someone daily. I love him being here - I always hate when school starts in the fall, I like having my kids around - even in the winter :).
I am so thankful for this "push" that I need to explore homeschooling.
I love it!
I am super excited to continue and see where this leads!
