As I've eluded to a few times here on the blog, homeschooling has always been in the back of my mind. For various reasons, it has always appealed to me. I don't consider myself a teacher by any means, but I know my children best and feel capable to teach to their learning style and needs.
A few months ago, homeschooling was on the table again. And this time, it was there for good. Yesterday, I began homeschooling one of my children, which meant withdrawing her mid-year from public school. I won't get in to specifics on reasons, but sufficeth to say, I am fully confident about our decision. Even my lifetime educator of a mom has my back. It was just critical to pull her out...at least for this semester.
So what does that mean for our lives?
Well, I'm not sure yet. I've still got two little ones at home who need my attention, so balancing that new normal will certainly be an adjustment....but I'm up to the task. Plenty of mommas manage it...I know I can, as well.
My daughter is willing and compliant...even excited about some of the things we'll get to do. I have admit, I am too. Imagine the possibilities!
Now, I know homeschooling blogs are their own niche, which don't worry, this blog of mine won't fall into. But, I do plan to share some lessons learned, struggles, triumphs, what homeschooling looks like in our home, etc. that may be helpful to another momma who has homeschooling in the back of her mind.
For you mommas...have you ever contemplated homeschooling?
And if so, do you have a strong reason for doing so, or is the idea simply appealing to you?
