Home schooling thus far has been a learning experience for ME. I started out homeschooling Kelsey and then put her in 1st grade in November of that year. Charissa started out in public school, attending K and 1st grade. When we moved from the 'burbs we took the leap back into homeschooling and it has been interesting to say the least. It is a far more colossal job than I imagined but at the same time I know it is the best for us. We just finished our 2nd year and the girls had their annual assessment done by a certified instructor. And despite the lackadaisical schedule we kept this year they actually moved forward in their academics! Kelsey is above grade level in everything and in a couple things way above grade level. Charissa is above grade level in everything except math, which she really doesn't like. Maybe there is something to be said about a more unschooling approach.
All of that to say, I hope to spend more time sharing with you what we are doing in our home school adventures.
I'm researching some curriculum for this next year. The children LOVE history and so I am thinking about going to a history based classical approach and found a curriculum I am hoping will work well for us. I'll tell you all about soon.
Except for a little math, we are taking the next month and a half off to be outside! Lots of gardening, farming and raising frogs. :)
