Homeschooling...

A few of you have asked me how homeschooling is going...
So far it's going really well! I think that for so long I was so set against it, and expected it to be horrible (and I'm sure we'll have days like that!), but so far it's just been really easy and dare I say natural? The kids (especially Ava) LOVE it. She was so bummed that yesterday was field trip day instead of a normal school day. The curriculum is easy and just involves a lot of reading so far in normal books, which we do all the time anyhow. It takes just about two hours each morning and then we are free to play, run errands, go to the library, play with friends, go on walks, do our co-ops, etc.

Sounds so cool what you are doing. We have been praying about homeschooling and then an older mom at our church recently gave me a ton of her sonlight books/schedules, etc- pretty much confirmed it for us =). I am so excited and can't wait to start next year. You should definitely write about how it goes for you- and any ideas that worked. I, for one, would love to learn!! fondly- Candace
