my father's world

2013-2014 School debrief

We made it through our first year of "officially homeschooling" in early May. After the first two weeks, our honeymoon period, we hit a few rough spots but we still came out well . First, the harder parts so I can finish with the good stuff.

Two curriculums were too much. The plan was My Father's World kindergarten for the boys and Sonlight Core B, for my daughter. We did alright for a while but a couple months in I was overwhelmed. I thought is was just difficult because part of our life became unsettled as we were trying to help an other family in a tough place.

Our Homeschooling is now OFFICIAL.

It is official, I have notified our school district that we will be homeschooling our 6 yr. old daughter. I bounded around with excitement and told anyone who would listen after I turned in our letter of intent.

Another milestone we have now passed is purchasing curriculum. I have met and read blogs of amazing homeschool parents who create there own curriculum or at least make there own lesson plans but alas that is not what I am able to do.
